    Down to just above $3.00 right now at $3.09 don't expect that to last though as season is warming up for us. So, the stations will all raise there prices like they always do when we get the tourists rolling in.

    4 months of Yankees not knowing how to drive, driving drunk before 10am, clogging up all the good restaurants and complaining about the way we do things. Oh, the joys of Florida.

    While it is down here (I paid $2.91/gal this weekend), the gas is now "winter bled" fuel here. My Civic which normally averages around 39 mpg is down to 32 mpg off of the last tank with mainly highway driving... so the price difference is basically a wash.

    I need someone to explain why diesel only dropped a nickel while gas dropped 67 cents. I's like to see diesel drop as absolutely everything we use is transported by diesel power. Fifty or sixty cents a gallon on a 300 gallon fill up is a good chunk of change.

    Why is it that diesel is more than premium gasoline? It's a higher fraction to distill [less volatile] than gasoline therefore it's easier to distill and there's more of it. Generally, the higher the fraction the cheaper the price. That's why you don't pay what would be the equivalent volume of gasoline for a cubic yard of asphalt. Moreover there's precious little difference between diesel and kerosine but a large price difference.

    So why is diesel the most expensive fuel on the board? It didn't used to be, at one time diesel was way cheaper than gasoline. And rightly so. I bought my first diesel truck in early 2000 and ON THAT DAY, no kidding, diesel shot up to be more than premium gasoline and has never come down.

    It was $3.61 for premium in NC yesterday... as for the diesel I think its because there are more diesel cars/trucks on the road today than ten years ago, so the oil companies, seeing the increased demand, jack up production and price.... that's totally 100% my opinion though and am most likely wrong.

    You know you can make your own diesel for almost next to nothing (aside from the materials, equipment and time) though right?

    $3.42 at the cheapy gas places $3.49 at the other places. at one of the cheapy places, they give you an extra .05 off a gallon if you pay with debit or credit and the other gives you .03 off for paying cash. which brings it down to the lowest I've seen for a long time

    IMHO Oil companies see a cash cow with diesel. Think about this for a minute. Class 8 trucks on average have a 300 gallon capacity. Combine that with roughly 6 miles per gallon multiplied by all the big rigs on the road today. See where I'm goin' with this?

    Around $3.22 gal.

    In addition, we get money/points/rewards off from our grocery purchases which amounts to usually 30¢ a week per 30 gallons. We also have the company vehicles going through a specialty place which is well below street cost for gasoline and diesel. I haven't bought gas at a regular place in years, except once when I was in an emergency, which was not a big deal. Baz, you remember that, huh ?? :wink:
