Monday, 22 March 2010 00:00

The average per-gallon prices of both gasoline and diesel fuel increased for the fifth straight week last week to levels not seen since 2008.

The price of a gallon of gas increased 3.1 cents to $2.819 per gallon for the week ending March 19, the Department of Energy said Monday. That’s the highest price since Oct. 20, 2008, when it hit $2.914 per gallon.

Gas has risen 21.1 cents in the past five weeks, following a 14.3-cent decline in the previous five weeks.

Meanwhile, DOE reported that diesel’s national average price rose 2.2 cents to $2.946, a 16-month high and the fifth consecutive weekly increase.

Diesel has jumped 19.8 cents in the past five weeks, after falling 12.3 cents in the previous five, DOE said following its weekly survey of filling stations.
