Today I filled up for $1.899/gallon. That's the lowest price I've paid since June 18, 2004.

RUG was $1.799 at the same station.

Gas prices are actually going up near me, with one station deciding to jump up 10 this afternoon. But diesel is steady to down, with the dirt cheapest being $1.939 for cash at the Dodge's Fried Chicken, Taxes and Gas.

I've gone to Dodge's Fried Chicken before for fuel and found they were always the cheapest diesel in most of the South. Apparently, not cheaper than some parts in Texas. $1.829 yesterday at HEB just north of Cleburne, TX.

I noticed D2 is dropping under $2 again. And at least one station is almost (2-3c) cheaper for D2 than RUG.

It's cheap but at least at the stations in Foley and Mobile, they charge +6 for credit. It wouldn't be so bad but some others match their cash price regardless of how you pay, so they don't get much of my business. Plus, it can be kinda seedy. That, and the pumps seems to always be acting up. Last time I bought there, the pump over-ran by ~5 after I shut it off. It just kinda petered out. Considering I pre-paid and it was supposed to cut off at a set amount, it infuriated me. But no, I did not go in and pay the extra 5.

Circle K bought and renovated a nearby Exxon station, so I've been filling there. Name brand diesel at Dodge's prices, plus I get/redeem Plenti points there. They always match or beat the usual low price crew (Dodge's/Tom Thumb/Walmart).

Locally, gasoline prices are up almost 10 on average this week so far, to $1.859 while diesel is steady or down, with the low end at $1.939. I'm OK with this.

Albany NY I'm filling up at Cumberland farm using their "smart pay" card for a additional 10cents off to get 2.15 a gallon. Regular price $2.25. Cheapest diesel I've seen in this area for over 10 years probably. It's a shame but I honestly can't remember diesel being under $3 in NY that's how long it's been. I do remember when diesel hit $5-6 a gallon after hurricane Katrina though

Filled up last night - Sam's @ $1.91/D2 while there was a SpeedWay across town for $1.84/D2. But with low fuel warning and holiday shoppers I don't think I would have made it.

Did have a nice chat with a Cummins guy. He seemed to know diesels pretty well and relayed a cool blown LS1 project.

Default Gotta love those fuel points!

After buying lots of gift cards at Smith's (they were giving 4x fuel points for gift card purchases), I got 95 cents off per gallon yesterday. I filled my tank and 2 - 5 gallon fuel cans (just over 24 gallons) at $1.28.9 per gallon. That was over 24 gallons of D2 for slightly just over $31.00 ($31.28). Boy, do I love those Kroger (Smith's) fuel points.

Have Fun!

Don

I just saw one station with diesel at $1.99. Of course I just filled up last night at $2.06. Ugh.
