Took a drive yesterday out through western MA and into NY a bit. Diesel was between $5.59 and $5.99/gallon. The surprise is that it's $1.80 to $2 more than RUL. I think that's the biggest gap I've ever seen.

Yes, I sort of got used to the $.60/gal margin for many years. Now it's just off the chart.
Put regular gas in the Goldwing yesterday for $3.49 in a tiny town (pop. 167) Cenex. Gas is almost always less expensive there compared to home town ($3.64) and it's a great ride route. Diesel was $5.29!!
Diesel is so in demand, especially in Europe, and with the Russian supplies shut off and heating season coming on it's probably going to get worse.

It has me wondering if we should pick up a cheap gasser for driving around town. Gotta do the math.

Last week diesel was CAD $2.10/litre (around 5.80/gal US), and I’m about due for another fill (driving one of my pickups now), hoping it hasn’t gone up again. If I fill the slip tank and the truck it’s going to set me back $900-1000...

I'm hoping it allows me to find a JSW for my son at a better price.
Yeah, thats one of the things I have thought... may make diesels cheaper again. Kinda like the stock market, lol.

Gotta wonder if it's all the phony manipulation/use of our oil reserves. Ive heard we are @ 60% of our high in 2011. The reserves have never been used to manipulate prices before (elections ... hint hint). The reserve was put in place for stability (war surplus)

14 day / 40% of fuel reserves, hasn't been this low since 1950.
I don't claim to be any kind of expert, just listening.
But when the cheif in command is scared about an an election and in charge of the oil reserves... elections soon over. Nothing holding him back $$$
Hang onto your shorts... and wallets

Here in Sacramento diesel is cheaper now than it has been in months.

Costco $5.05
Woodland Fuel Stop $5.80
Sam’s club $5.05
Valero $5.09
Arco $5.49

I’m not sure if this is being caused by doom and gloom panic buying but it does seem like a possibility.

Just got a notice from my heating oil supplier that we should be prepared for even higher prices than the 25% or so increase they projected at the end of the summer. This will be an interesting heating season.

yeah I work in Yolo county. Woodland fuel stop is close by and usually within $0.50/gal of Costco so I go there to fuel up sometimes.
