While unleaded had gone up approx. 50 cents a gallon diesel here has stayed the same price. Diesel has been running about 90 cents a gallon more than regular unleaded until just recently. Another teaser for diesel users???
Prices 30 days after the current administration was sworn into office 2/21/09.

True, but the highest prices historically were the summer before the current administration was elected. Check out the 8 year national average.

Southern California

Hold onto your wallets! We just got back from a trip to Yosemite National Park.

When we left on Thursday, 10/03 it was $4.19 for regular in Orange, CA. We saw $5.41 for regular inside the park and when we got home on 10/10 we filled up in Fontana, CA at $4.71 for regular!!!

Tesoro didn't refine enough summer blend and ran out causing spot shortages in the state. The Governor allowed the refineries to start making our winter blend early but the damage is done.

Thanks to the AQMD regulations California is not allowed to import gasoline from outside the state.

We ended up spending $337 for a 950 mile trip.

We filled up with diesel at Walmart in Meridian, MS this morning for the bargain price of $3.74.

How sad that this seems cheap.

I remember less than that. .19 a gallon in Houston during 'gas wars' between competing stations. they also pumped it for you, washed the bugs off your windshield, and gave you a Houston Oilers logo highball glass with a fill up.

Over the pond in the Uk
Petrol (Gas) £1.36 per litre
Diesel £1.41 per litre

66 litres in my Nissan this week £97.00 = $155 66ltrs = 17.4 us gallons
So we are about 3 times as much as you :-(

a better question for island dwellers is 'how long does a tank of fuel last you?"

This island is seventeen miles by about 2. A tank lasts a long time.

Thatís not government, thatís the market and big oil. They look like theyíre doing their best to level out that playing field.
