last week when i filled up here in the Dallas area, B100 was $2.849 gal and ULSD at a Valero station was $2.899 gal. No doubt it has gone up since, but it will be another week before i need to fill up again.
. . . on the bus.

I paid $2.839 here (North New Jersey) at the local Hess, rug was $2.959. For some reason it smokes much less all the sudden. Maybe they switched to ULSD?

Drove 120 miles between my parent's house to mine, through the country. Price of D2 ranged from 2.839 (where my parents live) up to 3.059 (where I work)

$3.02 Mobil D2 in central Massachusetts. A gentleman driving an Audi walked over from the gas pumps to ask about my mpgs. He thought $3.02 for my fuel was a bargain. Compared to his gas price, and what some of you are seeing to fuel your TDIs, I suppose he is right. Where will it all end?
