You are kidding me....

Think yourselves very lucky with your fuel pricing over there in the US...
The average per gallon comparison of diesel here in the UK is $6.72.
That's a lot less than of recent months but if you were to ever venture to France and Italy bring some calming tablets with you....you'd have paid $9.08 last summer.
I know it's all relative but all the same there's a huge imbalance there. We are taxed heavily on fuel but then again against all odds the government is now paying 80% of most folks' wages to stay at home in lockdown
I now realise the value of fiscal monetary policies
Yes we all get screwed one way or another but I hope your guy empties the Federal reserves (hope that's right) to keep your infrastructure intact for when we all can go back on the road.
Take care, be safe!

Everyone needs to remember the 10% of the savings charge too. Effective prices near Memphis yesterday were between 1.61 and 1.69. Still a savings of .20 over the best prices at any other stations I saw. If you download the Excel version of the prices, here is the formula to copy into column G for effective pricing:



=(D2-E2)*0.1+E2

Buffalo, NY area gas down to an avg. of $2.32 gal. The lowest diesel I've seen is $2.72 which is at a Speedway four miles from my home. Speedway one mile from my house $2.87 diesel! Bought gas at the Indian Reservation a week ago for $1.31 and the station across the street was at $1.29! and packed.

Often wondered myself given gas is a more refined form of crude oil. Only thing that made sense was that diesel is a more commercially applicable product in terms of demand in the transportation industry. Trucks have to roll to deliver goods, trains and shipping as well, the costs can be passed on more effectively to the consumer.

Stuck in the middle again!!!

Your exactly right. Diesel prices used to be less than gas because it's not as refined. Then some musclehead decided they could make a lot more money with all the truckers on the road and jacked up the price. Makes zero sense because how each is refined except for greed.... And the higher price of diesel then gets passed down to the consumer of goods..... US........

Gas is a by product of refining oil. There is only so many % of oil in any given type of crude. The rest is turned into other chemicals like gasoline.

This may help you understand the price difference in Gas and Diesel and why it is often much higher only miles apart - but across a state Line!

Well....California is still nailing us with high taxes. Our local Chevron dropped from 3.99 to 3.59. I'm sure Costco is cheaper. In 2005 we bought a new Monaco Diplomat. At that time, diesel was 3.50 a gallon. So anything under 3.50 around here is good.

Filled up at the love's on I95 in Jacksonville, Fl exit 366 using my EFS card. Diesel said 220.15 for 88.450 gallons. When I got the bill it said 161.96. I will take a savings of 58.19 any day.

You're taxes are ridiculously high in California because the local politicians keep enacting them. Those are the same politicians that the citizens keep electing again and again. Do't you think it's time for a change. I'm sure I won't be missed but I have no plans to return to CA for any future trip. Other kooky rules contribute. I go where I'm wanted.
