My wife and I took a trip from Florida to North Carolina at the end of September. We stopped at a Flying J on the way up and bought fuel for 2.62 a gallon . One week later on the way back home we stopped at the same Flying J to top off , Diesel was 3.26 a gallon !!! A .64 increase in the span of 1 week is insane , that's almost 25%! Needless to say we won't be taking any trips for awhile

I got fuel the other day for $3.18 and thought that was high. Flying J is usually the cheapest fuel around.

The affects of Rita are sure having a terrible impact here in Texas . . . Dallas/Fort Worth area it's about $3.35 - $3.40 range! Same around Waco . . . and some stations are just OUT of diesel.

Might want to bookmark http://www.gasbuddy.com/ I just paid 2.92 for diesel at the WalMart in Bedford TX (Central at Bedford Rd.) after driving by stations showing 3.39. That was with the 3 cent discount with the WM card. No card? Just go in and buy a gift card as needed to get discount.

Georgia suspended gas tax for a month. Probably what happened was you got some without the tax and the last bunch with the tax. Still doen't ease the pain at the pump. Maybe we can do like our grand kid, camp in the back yard. s/Toby

Flying J at seffner (I4 exit 10) had diesel priced at $3.339/gal, gas at $2.979/gal. WHY is diesel higher than gas. I'm really surprise that the truckers haven't started a slow down or the Gov step in and force a fix price. (flame off)

I heard the diesel price spiked up because the refineries that are still operating after our two recent hurricanes are concentrating on making gasoline to alleviate the shortages of that product. Consequently, the supplies of diesel are dwindling and the price gougers have seized that as an opportunity to jack up their prices at the pump.

Overnight diesel rose .25 cents. Now at $3.00. Unleaded remained same at 2.89. This is at cheapest places in town (diamond shamrock & Wal Mart) At other stations the price can be .40 to .80 cents higher, yet people still buy fuel at those places????

I have seen diesel fuel sell for as much as $3.689 here in the Grand Strand market. The reasons why are evident but there's no doubt that each and every one of us will be paying for the increase in the goods and services that we buy. Couple the fuel increase with the increase in the price of commodities that are moved using fuel and you're talking about some serious money.

This problem is so much bigger than the individual consumer spending more at the pump, it's more important to note that every one of us will be paying more as soon as we get out of bed in the morning.

I think it will be very interesting when the big oil companies quarterly statements come out and we get to see just how much their gross profit margins have increased.

Here in North Carolina we have a $.27 gas tax one of the highest in the country. Our govenor will not decrease any any for us. He got a bunch of highway projects going on. If prices stay like this we will not need the highway projects. I did not vote for him either.

Let's remember the forum is for "The thoughtful exchange of information".

Please don't turn this into a political discussion. I have already deleted one such post.

Thanks Yall!
