The photo below is located at a Valero station here in Monterey, Ca. that I've been buying fuel at for more than 15 years. For the past 20 months, the cost of diesel has been consistently .45-.47 cents higher than regular unleaded. The margin between them is shrinking. BTW diesel hasn't been under $4.00 here for a very long time, which I burn my share of it.
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!
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.

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...

Gas in Grand Junction yesterday was $3.06-3.09 at the cheapest stations. With a 10¢ discount, we paid $2.99. Since food prices keep going up, we get the gas discount quicker, a dubious benefit.
Wholesale gas Friday was $3.15 on the NYC fuel market.
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?
