I'll say. I just bought fuel for my house tank and it was up $.10 from when I last bought it in March or April. I would have expected it to be less expensive. However, I bit the bullet anyway as my success rate at timing the market is pretty low. But signing up for 240 gallons at once hurts. Good thing I don't own a boat.

I filled up on Thursday am for $2.269 at a Murphy USA. Two miles away diesel was $2.559 at a Shell station, and there were stations less than a mile away which were charging $2.399. Thank to the GasBuddy app, I did not pay more than I had to. Most stations in the metro are charging $2.399-$2.459.

I've found gasbuddy to be fairly reliable too. I like the new search feature that gives price by distance. Don't want to drive 40 miles round trip to save 5 cents. However, I stay away from Murphy stations. I always got lower mileage on their fuel in the bug than anywhere else. I don't think I've ever run anything from them through the JSW or the Golf.

Shoot, not here. I'm in Mobile, Alabama today and diesel is $2.219-2.519. Regular unleaded is $2.039-2.199.
