Running around the panhandle of Florida earlier in the week and noticed D2 hovering around $3.00 a gallon. Made me glad to get back home and fill up at $2.79 yesterday. The truck took about 22 gallons, so the bill was still over $60.

over that last few weeks in the metro Denver Colorado area rug has gone from ~$2.20 to above ~3+, while D2 has continued to go from around the ~$2.50 to just over ~3 a gal. ...my last fill up was for $2.899 a week or so ago.....

I watched RUG go up ~$0.50 in a three day period last week ...thankfully during that time, D2 prices were holding pretty steady still in the $2.90-3.10 range... I always love this time of year when RUG & D2 usually reach parity for at least a few weeks...

D2 has slid back a few cents at some of the stations. The one I drive by the most is back at $2.79. The high last week was $2.83 there.

$2.99 was common around the KC area over the Memorial Day weekend, but a new P66 in Waldo 'burb kept it at $2.87 and I needed to tank up the truck and then the wagon. Now after the Holiday weekend, it is back to ~$2.93 at most low price stations, but you can find as low as $2.69 if you hunt!

I am switching from Optilube XPD to their Summer+ additive. No anti-gel but has the lubricity ingredients and claims more cetane improvement. I'd like to see if it does anything for FE.

Diesel prices are falling slightly here on the AL gulf coast. Several stations peaked at just over $3/gallon over the Memorial Day weekend, but the range is down a good bit, ranging from $2.949-2.979.

One exception is a station that recently dropped the Chevron branding for BP. Their diesel is still $2.799/gallon, the same as it was at least two months ago. Since the pumps were swapped out with new hardware I decided to give it a try on my last fillup since it was much cheaper and so far it seems to be OK diesel, although I'm smoking under heavy throttle a lot more than usual. I imagine it's leftover Chevron diesel, but no way to know for sure.

Returning the BP branding to this area seems like a curious move, as we were hit hard by the fallout from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Every now and then I still see a bumper sticker that says "FBP" in one of those ovals that normally has the airport abbreviation of famous tourist towns in them.

Up a few cents in SC. Now at $2.80 and, of course, the truck is dry.

Down under $3 around most places in Baltimore, having loaded up before it went over $3 paid off.
