Oregon Fuel Costs

Has anyone bought diesel fuel in Oregon in the last few day for their MH, if so can you tell us what the price was. We're from the east and most states charge fuel taxes at the pump. But remembering from my truck driving days, Oregon didn't. Since we're heading up I-5 from Santa Rosa, CA in a few days, I'm looking at fuel prices in order to plan the fuel stops. Oregon prices show on the web as being cheaper, but are they for us non-commercial private coaches?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

No, the prices shown are only of you have a PUC. RV's have to use the non truck pumps which usually are some 25 a gallon higher.
We're in WA but the fuel prices in OR can be slightly cheaper. We're paying somewhere between 3.799 up to 4.099 right now and we're only a few miles north of the OR/WA border.

Not sure how this will format (sent from phone). BTW, there's a handy phone app (Gas Buddy) that let's you search fuel prices as reported by other users.

You'll notice that there's more than a 30 cent difference in tax between some states.

Thanks for your info and we, as you, have several ways for obtaining fuel prices. In Oregon, that state doesn't collect diesel fuel tax at the truck fuel pumps, trucks pay Oregon taxes on driven miles. So when I looked up the fuel cost, all I got was the price trucks pay with their PUC permit and not what non-commercial customers i.e MHs pays. Non-commercial diesel prices include some kind of state tax and that tax or total price is what I needed.

Like your ride on your profile.

If you have a smart phone download the gas buddy app. Right now, at least in the Portland area diesel prices are anywhere from 3.69 to 4.09. Down state it can be higher. Large towns are generally a bit cheaper. So plan to fill in Medford and Portland. CA fuel prices are outrageous at best.

Diesel $4.18 here in John Day, eastern Oregon - lately, diesel prices seem pretty even all across the state, but prices for gas and diesel both have gone up about 20 cents a gallon in the last week...

If going up I-5 I'd suggest stopping at 7 Feathers at exit 99. I filled up Saturday and it was about $3.87 (Don't remember exactly). There is an RV park there, very nice resort, and it was $35.++ for a back in site and they give a code for $10 free play at the casino. If you get the casino players card you get a discount on fuel. They also have an area for dry parking for RV's at the casino. Above posters are correct in that many bill board diesel prices are for the commercial rigs and you will pay about $.25 a gallon above the listed price.

I second ciderdog's comment about 7 Feathers. The RV park is very,very nice. Get the club card in the casino for the discount on fuel and tank up as you leave.

Our local paper had a little blurb about how gas had gone up 26 a gallon, but the station right by work (ARCO) had gone from 3.299 to 3.799. That's 50 a gallon in just a couple weeks.
I bought diesel last month for 3.599, now it's 3.999 at the same station.

We were at Seven Feathers three weeks ago. I didn't check the fuel prices there even though we were in the truck stop twice eating and buying an urn in the store. In fact we never even used the $10 on our cards. One person did and won $100.

oregon gas tax

Oregon gas tax is .30 cents a gallon. If you see a posted price at a regular truck stop chances are it is minus this tax so simply plan on the extra 30 cents a gallon. Regular service stations normally post their price which will include the tax. Here on the southern coast today (highway 101) the diesel price is 3.99 to 4.05 which includes the tax.

We're in Tillamook HWY 101 we filled up yesterday at Fred Myers in town and I payed 3.89 per gal. And that included the tax Washington St. Was even higher anywhere from 3.99 to 4.29 although it seems like prices are changing daily.
