It makes no sense

I seen today that gas is down to $1.61 for regular but the price for diesel is still at $2.39 a gallon,that's where its been most of the summer.
How come the diesel price isn't dropping?

I expect because the use of gasoline is dropping off while the use of diesel which fuels the transportation of goods remains the same. It is a matter determining the profit and then taking it where it it easiest.

We needed about 65 gallons of diesel fuel yesterday. Driving down the road we passed a station with easy in and out and advertised diesel fuel price at $2.09. Turning around a motorhome + toad takes some planning so we decided to keep on going and look for the next good station. About 20 miles down the road we crossed the state line and saw a FlyingJ. Pulled in and we paid $2.67 per gallon for the 65 gallons!!!!!!
I keep telling myself the cheap station probably had water in the fuel and they were trying to get rid of the stuff.

One issue is that winter is approaching a there is starting to be a demand for heating oil which does eat up diesel stocks.

I remember diesel at $4.99 a gallon, I'll never complain if it's under $3.00 a gallon!

Reg. in NH is $2.11. It hasn't been stable this year. Up and down daily. I guess it all depends when the CEO's take there vacations.

Like in an earlier post heating oil cuts into diesel reserves. Spring and fall also get high use since that is the peak times for farmers planting and harvesting and most of their equipment is diesel. Jim.
