Price of Diesel Predicted to Decrease in 2014 and 2015

While the national average price for diesel has risen for the third consecutive week in a row, the Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration is predicting that the price will fall in both 2014 and 2015, good news for truckers.

The national average for a gallon of diesel ended last week with a seven-tenths of a cent increase to $3.190. This is almost reaching the level of a year-over-year increase from January 2012, something which hasn’t happened since last August. However, diesel prices are expected to drop across the country in the next two years, according to data from the Energy Information Administration. The average price of diesel for 2013 was $3.92. In 2014, it’s expected to drop 11 cents to $3.81, and 4 cents in 2015 to $3.77. Of course these are only forecasts and could vary based on unforeseen circumstances. The main factor taken into account in these forecasts is the prediction that crude oil prices will drop as world supply exceeds world demand. Hopefully, truckers can look forward to steadily decreasing diesel fuel prices over the next two years.
