I noticed that the North and South Carolina prices have gotten much closer since the new year. Currently, there is about a three cent spread on either side of the state line, at least in the Charlotte area. It used to be around 20 cents or more. I know the SC fuel tax is going up but it's only 2 cents a year over the next five years.

Prices went up locally again in another little spurt since my last post on the 12th. Gas is up, but diesel is both up and down the cheapest dropped 3 cents to $2.599 but the average is somewhere around $2.709 now, which is up about a nickel.

This is in S Baldwin Co. Alabama.

Driving from MA to Detroit and back last weekend we saw prices between $3.08 and $3.35. I think we got one fill in MI for $2.89.

Gasoline and diesel both continue to creep upwards here on the AL gulf coast. Latest observations:

RUG: $2.339 to $2.499
Diesel: $2.699 to $2.859

Lots of daytime volatility today, from what I observed, too. Within the course of about three hours, several stations changed prices both up and down while I was running errands.
