Yesterday regular was $3.89-$3.96 in Salisbury, MD, and $3.91-$3.99 in Dover, DE. However, there are a few stations around here attempting to sell it for $4.19.

You know something Kani, I remember in Michigan putting fuel in my dads welder and truck at 12.9 cents and him complaining then about how high the price of fuel is.

We are importing gas from Europe, but can import no or little diesel from Europe because they have a lot of diesel cars and need that fuel. Thus, a shortage of diesel here raises the price a lot. So, Kani, it is supply and demand and the lack of refinery capacity in the US is part of that. Everyone wants a refinery in someone else's backyard; all those who want one in your backyard, please raise your hands.

We fill the tank and a 5 gallon gas can, go to montrose to get some other stuff (20+ miles from delta), drive home (about 65 miles), ordering another 5 gallon can when we stop at the carquest store on the way, and now probably could empty the 5 gallons into the tundra. So, 134 or more miles at about 16.5 mpg = 8.12 gal. X 4.019 = $32.64 to get some gas, some food, some odds and ends and order another gas can so i can buy gas 20 "cheaper" than around here. Every time i fill a can, i save $1.00. The whole trip felt crazy to me today. Living out in rural western colorado burns a lot of gas. A lot of people in rural america have low incomes and these prices are very hard on them. So, what are we complaining about?

I read a story recently that showed gas prices now with inflation taken into account are lower than in the years around 1980. Feel better?

I just filled up with e85 for $2.879. I think I'll put an e85 sticker on my fuel cap; nobody wants to siphon e85.

Filled up my truck and tractor with diesel Saturday, July 26, at Riverside, TX (near Huntsville) for $4.33.9. Why did I think that was a bargain?

Canadian gas

Filled with regular unleaded regular at Dawson Creek, YT several days ago for $1.71 per liter (about $6.80 per gallon). Needed it to get over the Top of the World Highway to Chicken, AK!

On our trip to the Grand Canyon from Northern California last week we saw diesel as low as 4.39 and as high as 5.99!! Yes, we paid the 5.99 because we were not close enough to the next station!! (I only filled a qtr of a tank)

WOW, highest price we saw was in NY a couple weeks ago. Decided not to fill, that was ALMOST a bad idea. Nearly ran out of fuel in VT, every service station we passed did not sell Diesel... On the bright side only paid $4.79
