Diesel gas prices trend downward but truck drivers are still feeling the pain at the pump

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas saw a record high again for regular gas on Thursday at $4.12 a gallon, but diesel prices are seeing a slow decline.

The price of diesel gas is down an average of 7 cents per gallon in one day. The last record high Arkansas had for diesel gas was on May 11th at $5.30 per gallon.

As of Thursday, the average price is $5.26.

Even with the prices trending downward, truck driver and owner of Road Legendz trucking, Jeremy Washington isn’t optimistic about the prices.

Washington is fairly new to the trucking business. He started his own company in 2019.
