Can anyone tell me what kind of web sites are out there to check diesel prices while you are traveling? I know of gasbuddy.com, are there any other sites to check?

Flying J, Petro, etc. all have websites that update their prices every morning. Flying J will also show you when a station has a low supply.

I usually print out the list before every trip so I have an idea of what locations have generally lower prices than others.

Saw that also cb5300. Now if we can only get the price of fuel to come down accordingly. There is an.85 cent price difference between gas and diesel. Still can't figure out why diesel is so much more than gas. I have heard all the stories about supply and demand but it just doesn't make sense to me.

By the way how did you get the weather icon on your post? Went to weather underground but couldn't find anything about it.

Besides the Gas Buddy and Diesel Boss sites mentioned above, I've had very good luck using the MSN Gas Prices website.

Another site is the Automotive.com Gas Prices website.

Perhaps in Iowa, but that's not true across the country.

In Quartzsite, where we are currently, the difference between diesel and regular gas ranges from $0.10 to around $0.20 per gallon.

Really, does the price of fuel, diesel or gas, make any difference "while traveling"? My problem is whether I'm even going to start the trip.....
