Default Diesel Prices Summer 2012

Supposedly the price of gasoline is going to hit 5 dollars a gallon or more this summer, but do any of you think diesel will get that high? Usually the price of diesel drops in the summer, but do you think it will stay below $4-4.50? Diesel is already 4 bucks a gallon at a local Exxon station

If the price of crude is increasing, won't ALL petro distillates increase in price at a similar rate?
I doubt that diesel pricing will stay as is.

Diesel is $3.80 a gallon here in Indiana but I'm sure we will see another huge increase come summer.

If RUG hits 4.99 that will put premium at about 5.30-5.40 and diesel at least 5.50-5.60 a gallon.

I filled my up my Cummins yesterday and I paid $3.76 a gallon and RUG was $3.75 a gallon at my station. When I filled up my wife's car the other day, same station I paid $3.71 for a gallon of diesel and RUG was $3.49 a gallon. So diesel isn't going up as fast, but it will go up.
In 2008, I paid as high as $4.74 a gallon for diesel for my truck spending $128 to $140 every time I filled the truck up.

Currently in Toronto, Gas went up to $1.29 per liter on Rug, and Diesel is at $1.32 per liter

So, after converting it to what you US folks understand LOL

In Toronto, we are currently paying: (current currency exchange is at par)

$4.89 per Gallon for Rug

$5.00 per gallon for Diesel

So, in Canada, we are already pushing past the $5 per gallon mark

I fully expect to see diesel in the $5/gallon range this summer. We're already at $4/gallon here in the DC area and it's on its way up.

Here in the CPR, diesel is higher than premium gasoline. It is already at $4.27 where I usually fill up; the Shell station near me was over $4.30 the last time I looked. So I expect $5.00 by June. I may have to seriously consider the 2013 Jetta Hybrid if it uses regular; that would save me at least $5/fillup. Don't really want to give up Cranberry, though.

ˇˇˇBREAKING NEWS!!!

Fuel prices are on the rise... the sun rises in the east and sets in the west... unrest in the Middle East... kids like things their parents don't... things may be hazardous to your health... a new study shows promising results... weather is occurring in your local area... local squad scored more runs/baskets/goals/wickets than rival team in today's match.



Yes, fuel prices are up now and will be higher 'later' than now. This is the case and always has been. Enjoy the fact you get better fuel economy than 95% of all other vehicles on the road. Sure, $5/gallon diesel hurts a TDI driver but think what similar fuel prices do to the genius driving a 3/4 ton truck hauling a load of air or the 18 mpg minivan.

Diesel price in Caracas Venezuela is 0.01 per liter. I can remember complaining about $1.00 per gallon in 1976.

I don't think the 1.4L TSI engine in the Hybrid would take regular, it would likely be premium.

Well if not, then a Prius C might be an option to replace our current Gen II Prius. The higher mileage + lower priced fuel would be an offset to the higher diesel price.

Of course a 100MPG diesel hybrid would give me an effective 50% fuel cost cut.
