I still think the effects from DC are a significant portion of this run up.. I could be wrong, it sure won't be the first time..
China started major importing along with India. They're drinking from the same wells we are. Notice how diesel went up and excedes gas. China needs lots of diesel.

However, I'd still like a diesel Suburban.

Gene Said, "There's no easy way out of this, and the more we delay change the more expensive it gets. The US is good at crisis management, but not good at planning for the future."
Amen to that.. Really frustrating to watch these guys do nothing..
I hope the pricing stabilizes a bit. I think alternative sources are a long way off.
I certainly hope the next four years aren't as bad as the last four, in relation to gas prices.. $7.00 gas will make an Alaska trip just a bit too expensive..

Gene is right. Fuel is a world wide commodity based on the US dollar aka federal reserve note that has been devalued. Sal.

Sarasota, Florida, regular ranges $3.59, (cash and gas card) to $3.79 + , diesel is around $4.00. (Prices NOT next to Interstate 75) Prices higher elsewhere in Florida, IF coming south on I-75, stop at exit 2 in Georgia, . . . tend to be 15 to 25 cents lower, Cash always lower

Hi, and the Shell station in town was already $0.10 cheaper without a card. Premium is as low as $4.11 per gallon in Salem, Oregon. [name brand stations, not Arco or Joe's Dairy]

I fueled last Thursday at Murphys next to WalMart. Deisel Fuel was $3.89 a gallon. I have a walmart reloadedable card,I use that in the Mruphy Pump. Now till Christmas I think all products at Murphys with the walMart card at 10cents off per gallon. So mine came to $3.79 a gallon.
