Following two weeks of increases, the price per gallon of gasoline declined this week, according to the Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA).

Falling 0.4 cents, this week’s average is $3.239 per gallon. The previous two weeks saw gains of 0.7 cents and 2.0 cents, respectively. And those gains on the heels of a four-week stretch of declines, which saw the national diesel average fall a cumulative 7.2 cents, with declines of 2.8 cents, 2.2 cents, 1.9 cents, and 0.3 cents, respectively.

Prior to that four-week stretch of declines, the average price per gallon rose a cumulative 27.8 cents. Despite these declines, the diesel average has remained above the $3 per gallon mark since the week of March 26, when it was at $3.01 per gallon.

Compared to the same week a year ago, the national diesel average is up 74.8 cents, down from last week’s 76.2-cent annual spread.
