Ah the good ole days!

Bad News and Good News

The bad news: $4.19 9/10 for regular unleaded, $4.59 9/10 for diesel - cash prices, at the gas station closest to our home.

The good news: It's been holding steady, and not increasing, for the last three days.

The one time we ate out on this whole trip, a pretty good hamburger was $12 and a beer was $5.75.

That's it! My pix is the day before when it was a bit cheaper. Bob, I saw an 80's Excella, towed by a green chevy dually in Stovepipe, and a few others in Furnace Creak. Where was you?

Here in north east Texas we are still holding around $3.49 for regular unleaded. Looking at a short trip Thursday and thinking the shorter the better at these prices.

$1.30/litre or about 4.95 per US gallon. Diesel is several cents per litre higher. I suspect the days of 'cheap' fuel have ended for good.
Cheers, George

What do you think powers the chinese economy and global trade?

I just toured a container ship that goes back and forth between LA and China. It has a single diesel engine, single 1meter thick shaft and 6 meter diameter propeller. It's fuel line was one meter in diameter.
That is why diesel is so expensive these days and will stay more expensive than gas.

This is as recent as last week. Just got home from a trip to and through Florida from NJ. When I left it was $3.73 here in NJ. When I got home it was $3.79 at the cheaper end. Lowest on my trip was $3.58 in South Carolina. Highest was $4.29 in Everglades City, Fla. Most of Florida was in the range of $3.86 - $3.89. South Carolina was back up to $3.79 on the return trip. The average cost throughout my trip was $3.87.

I guess it is what it is
