TSD Diesel Fuel Prices - June 2021 - Little or No Savings

Just looking on line - the latest from Central Florida shows the cheapest diesel through TSD is $2.88. The Shell across from my Campground (with Truck Lanes) is $2.89.

I have been using TSD for about 8 months and this is the first time that I am not really seeing a discount between the TSD Price and local gas stations.

So, does anyone know what happened to the discounts?

I’m up in the Nashville area and still seeing good discounts unless of course you look at Loves Truck stops. I typically only use T/A

my closest TA is in Vero beach. Pump price there is $3.42 and my TSD is $2.97 $.45 discount but not as cheap as the Sam's Club down the road ($2.88).

There always have been less expensive options but usually they require more of a drive off the highway and / or a challenge to get in / out of with a long & tall rig.

For my upcoming trip from CT to NC i don't see any great savings with https://www.gasbuddy.com/tripcostcalculator over TSD or Fuelbook

Appreciate the feedback, but that has not been my experience.

In the past, TSD was always cheaper than anything on GasBuddy - but currently, that is not the case. I was wondering what changed?

Got the card and soon realized that the price I paid, with the discount, is higher than Sam’s Club and many other stations. I only use it when I need to fuel at a truck stop because I can’t get into any other place.

You don't get a discount at every station. Love's is about .5 cents and probably can be found cheaper elsewhere. Flying J and Pilot, are giving nothing. The only discount we saw, last month, was with TA and Petro. They were still giving a better price than anything around them.

Traveling up from Florida to Georgia to Texas to Arkansas to Missouri over the past few weeks, I have been able to take advantage of significant discounts over any of the lowest Gas Buddy prices. And I do check out all the options when I plan my trip. Sometimes the local prices are better, particularly if we are traveling away from interstate routes. But most of the time, I can find a better discount with the TSD card than a regular station price.

I think the biggest discounts come in states where the prices are the highest. I'm in California and I presume, (with our high fuel taxes) we are among the highest priced. I usually save anywhere from 56-62 cents per gallon at the Petro and T/A stations I usually fuel up at.

I have only used my TSD card a few times and only 1 time at an in-network station.

My experience has been that I can often find fuel about $0.25-$0.35/gallon cheaper at local stations. Yes, these are still commercial lanes. I filled up on Sunday at a very busy local station with commercial lanes for $2.76 and the next closest, in network fuel price within 100 miles along our route is $3.16 ($3.56 pump price). If you are filling 50 gallons that might not be a huge deal, but I just topped off with 150 gallons. That is an additional $60 saved over in-network stations.

Yes I still used the commercial lanes since I have dual tanks. Yes I still used my TSD card since I do not need to go into the store to activate the pumps. Yes, I am 70' long and I still needed to get gas in my toy hauler. No I could not easily access the poorly laid out gas pumps commonly found at most truck stop style stations. We did put gas in at the next town that had pumps parallel to the building for easy access.

Yes TSD offers discounts at in-network stations. Yes those discounts vary based on the current negotiated rates between TSD and the fuel vendors. Yes you can find cheaper or even much cheaper fuel at out of network stations.

About the time the pandemic started most of the truck stops eliminated the TSD fuel savings program but TA/Petro joined the program. TA/Petro still has substantial discounts over other truck fueling stations when using the TSD card.

TA/Petro truck stops are not as numerous as Flying J and Loves so some planning may be necessary if you decide to stick to TA/Petro. I've found with my 500 mile range with reserve I can usually find a TA/Petro truck stop along my route as long as I do some pre-departure planning. RV Trip Wizard does a good job of RV routing and showing truck stops along the route with the ability to filter truck stops to just TA/Petro.

Filled up on 6/11/21 at T/A in Cartersville GA and discount was $0.16/gal. That's much less than the $0.42/gal discount that I got the last time (3/6/21) I filled up at T/A in Commerce GA.

Not complaining about the discount - anything helps. But T/A is on the same level with Loves now, in my recent experience using TSD card.

Regards.

Chuck
