Sounds like it is time to warm up the old tar pot and fluff the feathers. Oh and find a nice long pole. Any Oil company CEO's want to volunteer????

Diesel around here is 2 to 5 cents higher than high octane gasoline. It is absolutely criminal that the oil companies are ripping all of us off. I hope to goodness that one day they are drowning in it and can't give it away.

Yes it is grinamal. The execs are grinning about their large bonus and how they are getting away with the high margins. Oh, and the governments think it is okay, so okay government, lets add another tax on fuel.

I don't see them coming down any time soon here in Kansas either. It went up a dime overnight to $2.09 where I usually buy it. It's now the same price as the 91 Octane unleaded I use in my Bonneville SSEi, which makes it about 20 cents higher than regular unleaded. The old '89 GMC Sierra one-ton gasser I traded in looks pretty good when I fill up my CTD.

87-octane gasoline is running $2.00 here, considerably higher for the higher octanes. Diesel is $2.35. The news media is advising everyone to get their tanks filled, gas is supposed to go up $.25 over the weekend and you can bet diesel will keep pace. They are also predicting that gas will go to $2.50 within a few months and who knows where by the time summer and the driving season gets here. Guess the days of 4 gallons for a buck, free if your windshield wasn't cleaned and you were not at least asked it you wanted your oil checked are gone forever. Now for 5/10 cents extra per gallon you can pull up to the "full service island,"¯ wait several minutes to get a dirty look form the kid pumping (you're the second vehicle today to bother him), another one for asking to get the windshield cleaned and still walk inside to pay the bill.
Frankenstiien, I can only sit with my jaw agape at your 2.89.
