Diesel Skyrockets

It was $3.38 a couple of days ago now over $1/gallon more. I feel sorry for the truckers and the AS diesel towers.

Is this due to winter blend? I bet the tanks in the ground still have the summer blend. What a rip off.

Airstream better start making lighter trailers.

Springfield, MO.

The explanation I have always heard is fall is when heating oil stocks are built up. Heating oil and diesel are the same base product, so with refinery capacity a constant limit, making more of one means less of the other. When diesel output is reduced, the price goes up.

Saw a "rogue" gas station in Ozark, MO selling diesel now for $3.62 while others still show $3.79. Maybe the prices will come down to the "normal" $.50/gallon more than unleaded regular in the next few weeks.

This may be just an anomaly in this area as diesel prices are lower in many areas.

I heard today the projected price for gasoline in 2015 is UNDER $3.00 a gallon.

I know I will be hitting the road more and for longer trips with that. If Keystone pipeline gets approved it may stay even lower.

The Keystone Pipeline is for exporting the oil pumped from the US and Canada to other countries.The only reason the gas is cheap is because of the Saudi's not our Big oil companies.The Saudi's drove the price down and Big oil is pissed.Enjoy it while u can it will not last .Just Google Big oil and hit the news tab it's interesting.

$2.51 at a Bradley in Grand Junction.

Moflash is right about the Keystone pipeline—it is only for export from Gulf Coast ports and may even be used to export oil from the US, not just Canada. Exporting oil may result in higher prices in the US. It could provide from 35 to a couple of hundred permanent jobs at most. The Koch Bros. want it and have given lots of money to certain pols to support it.

Diesel - Near Raleigh NC

I paid $3.27 for diesel yesterday at the local Kangaroo service station about 10 miles south of Raleigh, N.C. Best price I have seen in years.

For years here in Mexico the cost of fuel was 1-2 dollars less then the US. Things have changed. Today the cost of regular is close to $3.70 a gallon US. Pemex the only gas company in the country has been slowly raising the price x amount every month beginning in January of 2014. In addition it is illegal to pump your own gas so if the rigged pumps don't get into your pocket the guy who is pumping the gas will figure a way to get into your pocket. Seldom do you get what you actually pay for.

Prices are going back up.

Hi, we were lucky to buy three tanks of Premium for under $3.00 per gallon; I think that is over for us.
