Default Costco Fuel Prices

Costco consistently have lower Gasoline prices but the one close to me even the Diesel is cheaper than the Gas. How is it Costco has Diesel Fuel prices so much lower than anywhere else around?

Does that include bomb proofing and assassination attempts after filling? Oh and US drone strikes.

It was a joke that apparently missed you. By the way he isn't our fake president he is our real one, for better or worse.

As far as I know Costco does not sell Diesel in Toronto, Ontario. Even if they did it would be a 10 mile drive to the nearest Costco. Once there you have to line up for quite some time to get near a pump. But regardless even if I had a $ 75.00 membership, I could never ever recoup that cost in one year.

I got it and laughed, took it as more off the cuff than joke, but it is funny. That 4 cents a liter must be near cost.That's $0.32 a gallon, like back in the early '70s.

My Costco doesn't have diesel either, I use gasbuddy to find prices, it's never cheap, but I drive so little.

$2.89/gal in Tukwila, WA today.
$3.55/gal for the next cheapest in the city, from Gasbuddy today.


While it's not likely to pay for my Costco membership entirely, it does pay a good portion of it each year.
