Diesel fell for the third time in four weeks, doubling last week’s decline to a 4.2-cent drop to $4.085 a gallon. The decline — the biggest since Dec. 19 — leaves trucking’s main fuel 1.3 cents below than the same week a year ago. Its $4.148 national average price two weeks ago had been the highest since diesel was $4.208 on Aug. 18, 2008. Despite the recent declines, diesel has gained a cumulative 30.2 cents since its year-low $3.783 price on Jan. 2.
