Lately, I’ve seen a lot of headlines that highlight companies that are adding or replacing vehicles in their fleets with natural gas units. Various suppliers are also investing millions of dollars to expand their distribution networks so that CNG and LNG can be obtained more conveniently.
Diesel fuel prices have been rising steadily over the past month. Most of us are accustomed to volatility in fuel prices, but they have actually been relatively stable over the past 10 months. About a year ago, diesel fuel prices were approximately 15 cents higher than where they are now. Then, the price fell rapidly during March 2013 and hovered around an average of $3.90 per gallon across the U.S. until a few weeks ago.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that the price for U.S. on-highway diesel fuel prices rose 3 cents to $3.903 per gallon, the second consecutive increase. Gas prices were also reported and jumped 6 cents to $3.331 per gallon. Now, gas prices are 1% or 3.3 cents more expensive than a year ago. When also most all year it seems like gas prices would stay low, they have crept back up.
Are you thinking on getting a new car or truck for your company or yet even personal car? What type of vehicle do you get that won’t break your wallet with gas? Or do you keep your old vehicle and add gadgets to help save on fuel. There is so much out there to look at and yet they have more gadgets available now for your vehicles to help save on fuel.

The DOE reported the national cost for diesel fuel prices fell four-tenths of a penny to $3.879 a gallon. After coming off 2 straight weeks of increases it’s nice to see a fall back. The national average diesel fuel cost is 11.2 cents lower than a year ago at this time.

Diesel fuel prices rose for a second consecutive week, rising 2.4 cents to $3.89 a gallon, while gas prices jumped 7 cents to $3.673. Diesel fuel had declined for 10 weeks prior to the current gains, dropping 31.4 cents in that string of downturns.
The Department of Energy, DOE reported today that diesel fuel prices drop six-tenths of a penny for the week. The national price for diesel fuel now stands at $3.845 per gallon. It does make this ten straight weekly decreases. It’s been a great ride and fleet management, I am sure is happy to have the lowest fleet fuel prices since last July.
