Whats your point? but what? Inflation adjustment is a time tested measure of the true base or relative value of things. This is not a yeah-but issue "it is what it is."

Your response is redundant, the point made is the point!

Another example of maximizing the cost of oil by the producers?
I think not! Be thankful oil has not outpaced inflation like your Airstreams
new cost!

I filled up today in Littleton near Denver where the lowest price I found was $1.64. The price where I live in the mountains continued to go down until last week when it made a slight increase. Today the lowest price near Dillon is at $1.67. In a few months we've gone from a 70 cent difference in the lowest price down to 3 cents today. I love the games our local stations play with us in a tourist area. What really kills me is that the highest priced station is currently at $2.09 and is within sight of the lowest priced station, yet I see just as many customers paying $2.09 while they can stand there and look at the big yellow sign for $1.67.

Haven’t had the truck out since the last ski trip 2 weeks ago, gettin’ ready to head out again so I went to the fuel station to top off; deezul = $2.34/gal, petrol = $2.18/gal. Looks like the differential between gas and diesel is closing again.
Hard to believe but diesel cost less now than when we bought the truck 3 years ago!

While it's drops in other parts of the country, it seems to be on the slow rise here in NH..
Diesel is still 2.49$ and, regular gas (87) is now 1.89$...The lowest, I recalled seeing on regular (before it started climbing again) was 1.73$...
Not bad, considering some oil refineries are shutting down for repairs..
Enjoy your day..

Regular gas hit the bottom in Phoenix at around $1.37 a few months ago. It has been on the rise since then and is currently at the $2 per gallon mark.

Diesel here in south east PA has been holding steady at $2.499 for a few weeks, which is making me happy. High test is creeping up to $2.40 and beyond. I can only hope the price stays down for the summer camping season.

I still have two 5 gallon jerry cans of $5.00+ diesel at home that I bought last summer. I am waiting for diesel to go that high again to use it so I won't loose anymore money. That stuff is like liquid gold.

That's right, Deitz. That's special extra high quality fuel that's worth every penny of those $5. I had a similar problem with two 5 gallon cans of gas that I bought when prices were high because I could get it 30¢ cheaper than nearby when I was in the metroplex of Grand Junction, and then watched the price drop and drop. I gave up waiting, put it in the truck and it sure loved that special quality stuff.

Regular around here has been from the $1.70's to $1.90's, depending on which town you're in. The difference between the high priced small towns and the metroplex has been compressing. Lately Safeway's prices have been higher than City Market (Kroger) and Sam's Club has been pretty much the same as City Market and Bradley (the Colorado discount chain that usually has the best prices other than the supermarkets). One reason for being a member of Sam's was they had consistently low gas prices, but they don't anymore, so we're saving $40/year and dropping the membership. Their prices aren't that good on other things and quality is often suspect. We're hoping for a Costco.

OPEC's drops in production are barely keeping up with the global drop in use, but refinery closures in the US are keeping up the price of fuels. The refinery companies say they are doing maintenance, but they know how to create a tight market and keep prices and profits up. Nonetheless, when figuring in inflation, gas prices aren't that different from years ago, though diesel is much higher.
