Default Sound Off on Current Diesel Price

Hi Gang, Just paid $2.84 at my favorite station here in central Massachusetts. Just wondering what you all are seeing.

__. Up a good bit to $2.68 -- $2.75 in rural southeastern NC. I was in the Raleigh today and saw numbers about 10 -12 cents above that.

Same prices on the south side of Raleigh. I've noticed that it's about 5 cents higher when you can pay at the pump.

I'll be traveling through Alamance county on 85 tomorrow, hopefully it will be a little cheaper for my next 700 mile fill up.

I've noticed (more than once in the past) that the prices are higher IN Raleigh than out in the suburbs...

Here in Phoenix, mostly $2.90s and low $3.00s, with the occasional $2.89 mixed in. There are some stations (not near me) over $3.10.

And my B99 just went up from $2.64 to 2.91. Could be profit-taking, could be higher cost of methanol...who knows? I trust my supplier, and their supplier usually has good motives, but with D2 prices up, I guess I couldn't blame them too much for making a little money. 27¢/gal seems a bit excessive, though. I'm sure it's not (purely) profit.

I have been looking around for all of the diesel stations around my home and office since I got my TDI and the prices are around $2.95-3.15 a gallon, but I haven't had to stop and put any in yet

Last time I filled up, Petrol was $1.03/L and Diesel was $0.849/L.

Petrol is up to $1.08/L, but I'm not sure what Diesel is up to -- I don't fill up often enough. ($1.08CDN/L is about $3.59US/gallon. And I live in Alberta!)

I paid $3.279 for a couple gallons in the LA basin (south bay) last week, and $2.999 for B20 at a truck fueling depot that's open to cars as well. I didn't notice what D2 was selling for there, but it's usually about 10 cents cheaper than B20.
