I'm not feeling the pinch of the increase as much as the gasser group, but does make for conservative driving.
Regular unleaded bumped another .04 cents last night. At this rate, diesel may become cheaper than regular unleaded which hasn't happen in decades!

Edging toward $4.00 per gallon but estimated to be in the high end of $4.00 by summer. For those of us using diesel, it's the most expensive of all.

We all use diesel. The number one fuel consumed for shipping commodities around the globe.

If you can get diesel for under $4.00 bucks in the Phoenix area, you're doing well. Oddly, the truck stops are not the cheapest anymore; Frys and Safeway (with their cards) seem to beat them, big time. Not looking forward to three fuel stops when we head north next month.

Gas prices

You folks in the southwest are lucky, our new price for regular yesteray was in the $3.65 to $3.69 range. The cheapest was Sam's at $3.45. Glad to hear the Colorado and NM prices as we are headed out that way in August.......but who knows what they will be then.

About the best price I could find with GasBuddy for regular unleaded was $4.21 this morning! Maybe could have saved a few cents, but didn't want to risk having to push the Jeep for it. I have 5 gallons in my generator fuel can from just weeks ago that cost $3.69...

Come to the Rockies for cheaper gas.

Gene, why is gas so much cheaper in your neck of the woods? That's roughly 50 cents less than what we pay here. That's a big difference--almost 20%. is everybody distilling the stuff in their backyard?

Today's diesel price at one of the less expensive places was $4.00 per gallon in Atlanta. Going to be a tad expensive to go the distance this summer.
