Diesel is $3.28/gal here today! It's never been that high before and in these parts diesel is often cheaper than regular gas. Regular gas today is $2.78/gal

Gas prices are all over the place in New England. On a recent trip from MA to CT last weekend we paid as low as $2.65 in MA to a high of $3.10 in CT.

Today in Germany... 7.19$ per Gallon for Diesel and 7.80$ per gallon for gas... nice isn´t it??? OK, we have very high taxes on fuel but that won´t help my purse...

Greets,

That's interesting, 2air. I see Costco is not on the list, neither is Arco...

it does change some from year2year...

big surprise for me was no BP or exxon/mobil...

chevron is a newer addition to the list.

mfa is a smaller company so i was surprised, but they've been on since very early.

i seldom buy anything less than premium (>91 octane) so i avoid the hole ethanol issue, except for the lawn mower...

there doesn't seem to be a list like this for us sludge burners either.

cheers

In the San Antonio area diesel is running 3.25 but it can be found for 3.14 if you know where to go. Unleaded is 2.99 but it also can found much cheaper off the interstates. The high price I quoted are in IH-10 East of San Antonio. I'm seeing more stations (Texaco and Chevron) charging 5 cents a gallon more for diesel charged on a credit card. This does not apply to gasoline.

For the life of me, I can't understand why diesel is so much higher than gasoline and especially why the diesel purchase is penalized a nickle a gallon for credit card purchase.

I have heard from a reliable source that auto sales are down 58% in some areas of the Country. I'm affraid we haven't seen the last of the fuel prices.

Hi, I'm not surprized that Arco is not on the good list; This is an expression I use and the truth, "I won't burn Arco in my lawn mower." I won't buy or use fuels sold at no name stations, Joe's Dairy, Costco, Sam's Club, Vons, Albertsons, or Arco; [these are all the same] You get what you pay for. Many driveability concerns have been cured by recommending a switch to a major brand fuel.

Amoco didn't even make the list and I thought they were widely considered to have the best fuels. I also thought that a whole lot of different gas stations bought fuel from a lot of the same distributers. I wonder if I should stop buying Kroger gas (large grocery store chain here in the south east).

Some cars run better( more efficient, better gas mileage, more power) on lower octane fuels? Our Honda Accord's manual states the preferred fuel is 87 octane fuel. I had a Honda motorcycle that got better gas mileage and produced more power( as measured on the same dyno machine, it was a small improvement but still) on 87 than on 93. My Dodge w/hemi manual states that 89-90 octane is the preferred fuel but you can also run 87 octane. I normally run 89-90.
