SALT LAKE CITY -- Drivers using diesel fuel are getting some relief at the pump.

AAA's Web site reports Utah's unleaded gas price is at $2.36 a gallon while diesel is at $2.35 a gallon. The cost of diesel hasn't fallen below the price of regular unleaded since fall of 2004.

One truck driver says the drop in diesel prices has helped, but freight still isn't moving like it was a few years ago. He says hopefully diesel prices will continue to drop, helping truckers get more business.

"I would love to see it get back to the way it was 20 years ago, like a buck something," he said.
