Diesel fuel rose 1.9 cents to $4.142 a gallon, its highest price since the record-setting summer of 2008, while gasoline fuel also rose. Diesel’s increase — the eighth straight and 10th in 11 weeks — leaves trucking’s main fuel 23.5 cents over than the same week a year ago. Diesel topped out at $4.124 last May, then the highest since 2008. Monday’s price is the highest since it was $4.145 on Aug. 25, 2008. The record high for diesel fuel was $4.764 a gallon, set on July 14, 2008. Gas fuel prices, meanwhile, rose 3.8 cents to $3.867, the eighth straight gain and the 12th in 13 weeks. Gasoline is at its highest level since May 16 and is now 30.5 cents higher than the same week last year.
