I paid $3.86 about 2 weeks ago here in mid-Michigan. Filled up Monday and it was at $4.20. Same station yesterday was at $4.30. Anyone know what is going on? All three fillups mentioned were at the same Mobil station.

I don't know what's going on, but RUG jumped to $3.89 and diesel went to $4.29.

I forget where you are in SoCal, but my daughter lives in LA and I've reached the general conclusion that costs of everything there are pretty much off the rails. My mother-in-law passed away last year and her kids just sold her house: It received 17 offers in two days and sold for 30% over the asking price. Insane.

After my trip to the midwest, I paid anywhere from a low of about $3.50 to just over $4.00. Friends in Chicago area said to not get gas by them as it was really expensive. They were right, gas was expensive, over $4.25. Diesel on the other hand was only $4.19. About a di,e higher than I paid in Iowa. Went across the boarder to Costco in Wisconsin and saved about 60 cents. Also found Costco in the Indianapolis area was about 50 cents cheaper than the surrounding stations. First time I've actually found diesel at Costco! Also stopped at the new Buccees in Kentucky. Diesel was about 30 cents cheaper than the surrounding stations. First time I got DEF at the pump too. As my wife commented, Buccees was basically an updated cracker barrel without the sitdown part.

RUG dropped to $3.63 while diesel is still holding at $4.29 at the local Speedway.

Spoke too soon, RUG just went up to $3.75 and diesel went up to $4.59 at the local Speedway. :rolleyes:

My local has gone from $4.10 to $4.50 in the last 2 weeks. Sure, it's less that $7 a tank, but I gotta complain about something, right?!

Diesel is now on par with gas in Victoria BC at around $2 per liter. Apparently some tax went up... 🙄 It's gone up 35 cents since the start of summer.

Our tax increases usually take effect on Jan 1 or July 1. South Carolina fuel taxes went up the past few years to catch up to the North Carolina taxes. IIRC, they went up a dime spread out over 2 cent increases for 5 years.

Interesting, in our area (SE Texas) Love's fuel stations have the highest D2 prices by like 50 cents or more. This company and other 'truck stops' nearby really stick it to the truckers!

That price was high. The station is within sight of the stretch of 90 that's not NY State Thruway and not yet Mass Pike, so people feel it's a good alternative to the service plazas on each toll road. NY State Thruway service area fuel prices are especially high.

I paid $4.35/gal for home heating oil yesterday. Full service company, but that's still a big jump from last season.

$4.19 in Bandera, TX. I made it exactly one mile before my clutch fork crapped out on me (but now that car is operable again).

$4.40 in Palermo ME. Probably worth the effort to get 4 or 5 cans together and drive to the next town over to buy the dyed stuff.
