The big signs that face the interstate are normally the state tax exempt prices for truckers who pay road tax based on how many miles in each state they drive. Auto diesel prices are often a smaller sign, or are at the pump.Had a weird experience in Indiana.
Driving down I70 I see the station's huge sign facing the interstate. It showed 3.65 credit priced diesel. Sweet. I pull in.
As I roll in I see a much smaller sign. Tax Exempt Diesel - 3.55. Ok who cares.
I pull up to the pump. 3.85. ***?
I had wasted enough time so I went inside to ask what gives. She said oh that 3.65 was the tax exempt price. It says so on the sign. I said the huge sign facing the interstate? She said yes. She was wrong. I didn't bother arguing.
As I got back on the interstate I wondered....
Could the 3.65 credit price been at the truck islands?
Is there any chance the auto diesel pumps had a higher price?
