Diesel Pricing News
Both domestic and international forces are pushing up the price of diesel. The U.S. oil rig count fell for a fourth time in the last five weeks.
And on Sunday, there was an explosion on a drilling rig in Louisiana's Lake Pontchartrain, which also caused prices to rise. One worker remains missing after the explosion.
Tensions in the Middle East also caused an increase in global petroleum prices. Iraq's Kurdistan briefly shut down around 350,000 barrels per day of production due to security concerns.
Renewed worries over U.S. sanctions against Iran also drew attention in the market.
