Just topped off my 1/2 full tank today at the Shell Sta. at the Alondra Blvd. onramp and the 605 freeway in Cerritos,Ca.
Cheapest I have seen it. Regular gas at the Arco near my house is $2.87.9
Diesel cheaper than gas-yeah

Get it while you can, you know it's going to go back up and probably higher than it already has gone. Hang on to your hat after the election is over, gas and fuel will probably go through the roof then!

The gasoline is dropping in the Houston area, but the diesel is not following it down in our area. The truck is down to 1/4 tank and I'm watching for some cheaper diesel.

I haven't figured out why it's 1.939 for regular at one station & 3 miles away at another station (same brand) it's $2.199

So, it does pay to drive around (a little bit) to save some $$'s.

Dear Fellow RV's, I see no problem with the price of fuel or even Diesel. My cars get a $ 10.00 shot and the RV a $ 100.00 shot... just joking... smile - you are at a Truck Stop!!! The cam is on.

I'm going to pick up my coach tomorrow. The dealer has had it for 3 weeks doing the final warranty work. I purposly didn't fill it up with diesel before I took it in thinking that fuel prices may go down. The day I took it in, diesel was $3.66 per gal and I noticed today that Flying J in Troutdale, Or was $2.97.

A couple of weeks back we saw stations that were $0.30 apart on price and they were diagonally across an intersection.....and there were cars at the pumps of the higher priced station. How come these folks are never around when I'm trying to sell a house.

Diesel is $2.59 & reg gas $1.93 in the OKC area,...sounds like a bargain but if you stop & think about it,...we're still being ripped off!
