A little late, but here both are dropping; diesel was $1.05 more than the reformulated unleaded. (Diesel is 2.77 at the flying j; gas is 2.37.) Other parts of town has diesel still over $3/gal. My truck has been parked since it's gone over 2.61.

From what I'm hearing here I guess I shouldn't complain about the price of diesel $2.67 Flying J and $2.95 around here. But I still will complain because gas is @2.35 a gallon and we all know that diesel is just a by product of crude oil and doesn't even cost anything to make.

I'm out in the Outer Banks and almost fell over what the price of diesel was in Ocracoke Island at $3.49 a gal. On mainland NC it was $2.25. Wow its almost worth it for someone to drive to the mainland to fuel up and come back to the island.

I am going out to Rodanthe week after Thanksgiving (hope Stripers are hitting!). Is Diesel pretty cheap at the Texaco just off the island on 158? I have found that Rodanthe and points south are more expensive than Kitty Halk, etc. which is much more so than the mainland. Paying $2.50 around Frederick, MD this week.

I fueled up in Kill Devil Hills today for $2.49, a whole dollar cheaper than what they were asking for in Ocracoke. With my 40 gal fill up that would have been expensive down there than it all ready was. hehehe

I just paid 2.43 a gallon to fill up on diesel. Gas was 2.02 at the same station. This was in Athens TN, just off I-75.

I just filled up at a Quik Trip near St Louis for $2.20. Just on the other side of the river, I saw diesel for $2.60.

Today I happened to see 3 different stations near my house. One was $2.57, one was 2.49 and one was 2.29. All diesel, within 3 miles of each other, same county.

Fuel prices have jumped dramatically, but it's still not high enough to cause people to slow down to try and get better mileage. We just returned from a 9,000 trip around the USA, and usually folks were driving above the speed limits everywhere. One tank of diesel I paid $3.62@gal, and driving 60MPH on the interstate I was the slowest one on the road. The OTR trucks were still driving about 10MPH over the limit, just like a year ago. When the price gets high enough it will be evident on the highways. The sad part is our young generation must work multiple jobs(at places without retirement plans) now just to get by.

Diesel is still high here where I live in Indiana. Throughout my county diesel is $2.99. One county over at the I-65 interchange in Seymour it is in the $2.50's and 60's. I went to Greensburg on Monday and got biodiesel for $2.43. My wife was in Indianapolis the day after Thanksgiving and Flying J had it in the $2.30's.

It just doesn't make sense that the prices should be that different within the same state and region.

Most of the truck stops along I-81 and I-40 in Eastern Tennessee were getting $2.249 to $2.269 on Tuesday when I drove over to Knoxville. A couple local stations here in NC on SR226 had it for $2.379. I saw other various prices up to a maximum of $2.999.

Not sure what the folks running the station asking $2.999 are thinking, it was only a few miles from the ones getting $2.379. Maybe their fuel will rot in their tanks at that price?
