Crude oil is now trading about $10/barrel higher than early last week. And both RUG and distillate fuels are about 15-20 cents/gallon higher than last Tuesday. Prices for diesel at the pump are likely to reflect these wholesale price increases over the next few days.

Ike who?

$3.49 RUG
$3.65 Mid grade
$3.69 PUG
$3.69 for D2

It seems that Ike had hardly any influences on prices out here in California. Maybe because we pay too much already?:confused:

I filled up for $3.99 per gallon outside of Atlanta at a Pilot station, which is the price of RUG around here. Most stations in Atlanta have diesel fuel for $4.29 and more. There are gasoline shortages but there's plenty of diesel. :)

__. Yeah, I flew up to Bradley (Hartford/S'field), rented a car (PT Cruiser - what an effin' joke) and drove up to Greenfield MA, then flew out on Monday. Near I-91 in Greenfield, D2 was in the $4.05-$.20 range but near Bradley it was $4.49. RUG at both places was in the $3.65 range.

Was in Paddock Lake yesterday, and Mobil was still at $4.09. This was in the evening. If it has dropped again, that's great.

Found a relatively good deal yesterday-4.02 credit price at Road Ranger in Lombard, where up around O'Hare it's about 4.17. I actually drove by, saw the price and turned around to fill up.

A few days ago I saw diesel in Glendale, Ca. priced at $4.679 per gal. This is the first time I have seen diesel cost more than $1.00 higher than regular. Regular is $3.659 per gallon. Don

__. I drove across NC yesterday. I saw diesel $4.09 to $4.49 within two miles of each other but most stations near I-40 (except around Raleigh) were below $4.00. The Flying J at exit 150 was $3.84 and it's in the low $3.90's in southeast NC.

Both gasoline and heating oil futures were down about 24 cents on Monday. So additional price declines at the pump should be showing up later this week -- unless the market turns around Tuesday and goes back up again.

Diesel has been around $3.85-3.87 around there for the last 10-14 days. But I didn't buy any, I haven't been driving much.
