San Diego's Gas Prices Lower Slightly, Diesel Costs Rise

San Diego gas prices edged lower this past weekend, but there was a significant jump in the cost of diesel. The Utility Consumer's Action Network says the average price of a gallon of gas fell two tenths of a cent over the weekend. U-CAN's Charles Langley says diesel prices are moving in the opposite direction. He says the average price moved up six cents to $5.09 a gallon.

<b> Langley: </b> We expect it to keep climbing in fact I saw one station on the route that raised its diesel prices by 26 cents a gallon over the weekend.

Langley says the diesel price increase will put pressure on the rest of the economy because so many goods are shipped by truck. He says prices on the wholesale spot market are up sharply and he expects that to continue push up prices at the pump.
