D2 at 3 Berkeley CA Chevron stations range from $2.99-3.05
RUG at the same 3 stations range from $3.05-3.10

Up about .10-.15 over the last month, but the RUG seems to be going up at the same rate.

Citgo in Fox Lake along Hwy 12 was still at $2.89 this afternoon. Regular gas was $2.94 at the same station. Diesel at the BP station a half mile from my house is $2.99, which is the same as midgrade gas.

Around north Mississippi today, diesel was anywhere from $2.679 (Murphy USA, Batesville) to $2.959 (Sid's, Hernando) and everywhere in-between. RUG hovering around $2.699 everywhere, with a few higher prices scattered about.

In the Memphis area, I saw $2.699 (Murphy USA, Cordova) up to $2.97 (Love's, 78 Corridor). Gas is hovering around $2.699 in the metro.

$2.95 to $3.39 for diesel in my area. One Chevron is still holding out at $2.89 though. Not seeing any relief at the pumps or any sign prices will fall in the near future.

Paid $3.30 at a Chevron in a central Marin County "we don't care what we pay" location today. I know I could have gotten about .10 cheaper if I'd driven to somewhere less convenient, but that fuel light was on and I knew I had less than a gallon left in the tank. Wasn't worth saving $1.42 =]

$2.86 & $2.87 at two local east Palm Beach County stations.

Not too bad as that's only a few cents more than RUG.

Still only really half way through the Dealer-supplied full-tank.
Guess I have to drive mo' to get to that 1st fill-up.

I just filled in Long Beach, CA. There were two stations across the street from each other. A Chevron with 3.16/galon and a 76 with 2.98/galon. I went with the Chevron even though it was more expensive. The 76 pump did not have an ULSD sticker even though I know that all CA diesel is ULSD. I just like to play it safe. Generally speaking, I have noticed that the Chevron diesel is about 10-15 c/galon more expensive than the 76 diesel here in CA.

Down a few cents from last week. It had been $2.859 for several weeks, then this morning the local stations were $2.819 and $2.829. Still no trend, however; WTI crude is still stuck in the $80-83 range.

I haven't checked today, but the last few days I noticed that gas was down to about the $2.83 level, while diesel was still in the $2.93-2.99 range, with some stations even as high as $3.05 for diesel.

That sounds about right. In Costa Mesa the stations I usually frequent the 76 is $2.97 (Cash) and the Chevron a couple blocks up the street is $3.19. Though in competitive areas Chevron is as much if not lower than 76.. so it is about even I suppose.

Do you only use Chevron diesel? Have you used 76 or Shell?
