2.75 for RUL
2.85 for Diesel #2

So much for diesel being less than RUL!

Lakes-Seacoast NH $2.929 - $2.999 been that way for the last few weeks. I can't complain tho. Commute cost is less than half of what is was. Diesel would have to pass $6/gal to see what I used to spend.

Ok, I have fill my tank and the price was at $2.69 while RUL was at $2.77.
BTW: My mileage was 657 with 1/4 tank left, I only added 11.3 gal. Could I have made the 700 club?

Yesterday (2 May 06) in the Chicago area I noticed that Diesel is running about the same as the lowest-priced Regular Unleaded, which is right about $2.80/gal. The 93 octane stuff is about $3.10

Compared to my old ride Diesel would have to be $6.20/gal for me to complain!!

I got 23 gallons of B100 @ 2.95/gal last Saturday

__. All this pricing stuff is *really* wierd. I was driving by the Flying J near Burlington NC on Sunday. Diesel was $2.83 and RUG was $2.71 -- there were lines down the road. When I got home, diesel at the Wilco-Hess was $2.84 and RUG was $2.92. What's going on?????

Poor Cheshire Cat: $6.90,
Ed Butler: $6.83,
and
taking-the-cake dgt: $7.83

Let's see: at 50mpg, $7.83/gallon STILL works out to a fuel cost of almost 16 cents per mile. Gaaccckkk! Remind me to take a bicycle if I ever visit Scotland.

In Alaska this week, Fairbanks is at $2.839; in Tok I paid $3.049. I don't know about Anchorage - probably a few pennies cheaper than Fairbanks.

In Whitehorse earlier this week, I saw C$1.049/l or US$3.54; throughout British Columbia, the high I saw was the same and the low was C$0.979 or US$3.30.

There is no way to know. Amidst all the complaining, there is a serious shortage of information about the status of refinery shutdowns, maintenance, restart schedules, etc.

Part of it is proprietary information, I understand that; if a particular refinery is about to restart, competitors may try to unload their fuel at as high a price as possible, before the additional supply reaches the market.

But you would think that the people who are supposed to report the news, would at least attempt to find out. They could park outside the refineries, and ask everyone who goes in or comes out, "what's the progress? when's the restart?"

Gasoline is usually 2-3p cheaper than Diesel. Our smart arse government thinks that even though Diesels are more expensive to buy than their petrol equivelants, upping the tax of their fuel and road tax will not sway people from their extra MPG... Well their right, but it wasnt this way 10 years ago ...

Unleaded: 94.9p = $6.75/USG
Diesel / Shell Diesel Extra: 96.9p = $6.89/USG
SuperUnleaded / Shell Optimax 98RON / Tesco 99RON / BP Ultimate: 98.9p = $7.03/USG

BP Ultimate Diesel: 100.9p = $7.18/USG

Come to think of it, im pretty low on fuel... Bye bye 45 ($83) lol

A friend of mine in Saudi Arabia said that since a barrel of crude reached $75 ...in local Saudi Arabian gasoline stations have dropped their fuel pump prices from 90 cents a gallon to 59 cents a gallon.

Quote:
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia With gasoline prices at historic highs in the United States and some other Western countries, Saudi King Abdullah issued a decree Sunday lowering domestic gasoline prices by about 25 percent immediately.
According to a government statement, the decrease was to reach 30 percent by year's end.
Click here to visit FOXBusiness.com's Energy page.
The drop in prices means Saudis now will be paying 60 halalahs per liter of regular gasoline, or about 60 U.S. cents a gallon. The price of super drops to about 76 U.S. cents a gallon. There are 100 halalahs in the Saudi riyal, which is worth about 26 U.S. cents.
The statement said the king issued the decree to ease the "cost of living burden on Saudi citizens."
The big reduction in gasoline prices in the world's largest oil producing nation was announced as prices in oil importing nations reached record levels and oil company profits soared to all-time highs.
The price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the United States now is above U.S. $3 in some regions.
