International hostilities have helped cause the prices of diesel, gasoline and oil to all increase.

The average price of diesel went up 2 cents overnight Thursday night to a new national average of $2.75 a gallon Friday, according to ProMiles.

According to a AAA report, gasoline is averaging $2.63 a gallon – up 25 cents from a month ago.
