Gas Prices

OK.....the prices of fuel were lower when oil was $50/ barrel.

Have the different states added a tax on fuel?

Going up through California I am finding the price of
reg. gas higher than diesel.

What is happening???????

Welcome to California, we are always higher than most other states. After about mid May they will really go up when they have to make the fuel burn cleaner for the summer months. Right now they are blaming the refinery fire and a Strike that supposedly occurred.

Winter blend or summer blend affect pricing. Anything that slows down or shuts down a refinery will affect pricing.

The closer we get to our big summer trip, the higher the prices will go.

That's our barometer for gas prices.

We should be grateful if the price stays below $2.50 per gallon. Maybe we have seen the last of obscene profits for awhile.

Regular gas here is $2.10 and diesel is $2.54. With my PenFed Visa 5% cash rebate that brings it down to $2.00 and $2.41!

Regular gas is $2.09 diesel is $2.65. Price her in the last week has started to drop again. I still don't understand why diesel is more expensive than gas. It's even higher than premium.

Tony, I suspect it's because the gas companies know those diesel trucks have GOT to roll, whereas individuals buying gas can cut back if the have to!

And you think your fuel is expensive, here in the Great White North, we really get bent over, all under the disguise of going Green.

Here is a light bedtime reading article on the subject from a Canadian perspective but sheds some light for you folks in the lower 48 also. Check out the side links inside the article also.

Like I said California is always higher than most US States, they have a variety of reasons to blame it on, and ours has so many taxes applied. We are currently at about $3.40 for regular in Ca, the cheapest I have gotten it this week was $3.09 at a Mobil. Originally Mobil was supposed to go sky high when the refinery fire hit, as they supply about 10% of the gas for our area. So much for the refinery fire being the reason all the other gas stations having higher prices as in our area Mobil has been lower than Arco in some places. All these other brands are just jumping on the refinery fire bandwagon and raising their prices. My Dad used to work for Union Oil, and they always shut down once a year for maintenance, nobody got time off unless you were sick, the refinery could be repaired in the same amount of time they shut down for regular maintenance.


If you drive thru Needles California, don't buy gas there, It is usually well over $4 per gallon( with no refinery fires/summer additives). You can literally drive about a half mile into Nevada and buy it for around $2.50 per gallon.

Diesel is higher because in the last 40 years the US has added zero new refineries yet diesel consumption has gone up. This coupled with the ability to quickly turn diesel production lines to fuel oil production in winter months places a larger squeeze on diesel fuel supply especially in winter months. So as it becomes more scare the price rises.

If they keep adding more and more diesel autos this will only get worse, and more expensive.
