Diesel rose for a second week following six straight declines, increasing 2.6 cents to $3.854 a gallon, while gasoline rose less than a penny, the Department of Energy said late Tuesday.
The increase followed almost two weeks of $100-plus per-barrel oil, though the price fell under that level late last week.
Gasoline gained 0.9 cent to $3.391 a gallon, its fourth straight increase, DOE said following its weekly surveys of filling stations.
Crude futures rose $2.01 on the New York Mercantile Exchange Tuesday to finish the trading day at $100.71 per barrel, Bloomberg reported.
Diesel had declined 22.7 cents in six straight declines prior to last weekâ€™s 4.5-cent increase, according to DOE records.
Truckingâ€™s main fuel is now 44.7 cents over same week last year, while gasoline is 28.7 cents higher, DOE said.
Each week, DOE surveys about 350 diesel filling stations to compile a national snapshot average price. This weekâ€™s price survey was released on Tuesday due to the federal holiday on Monday.
