National average diesel fuel prices were $2.39 per gallon as of Sept. 28, 2020, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

This is an approximately 3-cent drop from two week's ago with overall national average prices still down around 47 cents per gallon compared to same time last year. Prices have remained relatively stable since early May.

  • East Coast: $2.47
  • Midwest: $2.27
