Prices are up only slightly in my area for diesel, with it anywhere from $2.729 (cash only) to $2.959 at the more expensive Shell station.

At least it's been fairly steady. Gasoline was up for Spring Break, then down, then up again in the last few weeks. It's ~$2.559-2.659 at the moment.

My last fill-up was about $2.530 after a Plenti card discount of... some amount that I can't remember. Pump price was $2.749 so that was a good few bucks off the total. The Plenti program is being discontinued in July, so I have no idea what I'll do after that for fuel discounts. T-Mobile and GasBuddy both are hooked up with Shell Fuel Rewards, so maybe I'll look into that.

WOW! A hundred and twenty-one dollars per liter!!!

Guess diesels are now worthless in Canada (or at least the Ottawa area).

Default 2.95 in Tampa is the low, 3.09 is highest I have seen this week.

Still the break even point of gas to diesel is good.

Distillate stocks keep shrinking -- now approaching the bottom of the five-year band and about 25% below last year at this time.
