Cool

Spool time....I always use the Mobil station off Rt.2 in Westminster. It's a very busy truck stop. Fuel is always fresh. I guess the prices there aren't too bad either, after seeing what some of you folks are paying. DK

$2.899 at Hess over the weekend in Elkridge. ~$3.10 in No.VA. I know its a terrible thing to wish for but I think it would be interesting to see all hell break lose if fuel reaches $5/gal in the US. People will start siphoning out of each others tanks and stealing gas from each other.

Seen a lot more motorcycles on the road lately.

Default fuel prices around Tampa

D2 is running around $2.89 most places around here. I may have to do a trip from here (Tampa) to Northern Calif. and back, so I reviewed the list of Flying J stations on my route. Current (Flying J) prices for my route range from as low as $2.739 to over 3 bucks per gallon. I sure am glad to be driving my TDI.

I also have noticed an increase in the number of motorcycles (and motor scooters!). A few minutes ago at lunch, we saw a couple pull up next to the restaurant in a motorcycle with side car (nice one, too).

I got almost 50 gallons of D2 three weeks ago at a Flying J near Richmond for $2.479 a gallon. I still have about half of it left I filled up six 5.25 gallon "gas" cans and filled my tank.

D2 is right at $3.00 a gallon in Northern Virginia where I live.

Nevermind.... when I started this thread on the 23rd my fuel was at $2.84...today I noticed the same station was at $2.96. By the time I need fuel again it will likely be over $3.00

Manhiem, Pa at the wo go station b99.99 was 2.799 and b5 was 2.959. And of course after I filled the guy told me it was going down today. The Pa turnpike has d2 for 2.939-2.959 and gas is 3.039 this is the first time I seen that.

It's been so long since I actually had to stop for fuel I forget how much it was

At least when I was commuting in my truck, I got to see the inside of several stations a week.

South of KCMO rug is 2.69-2.68
D2 is running about 2.73 at most places.....
But there is one shell station... D2@ 2.58, it's not red, but not hi-quality.
D2 has been stuck at that price for 2 weeks. RUG goes up and down though.
RUG has been going down since wed morning.
