    WTF is going on with diesel fuel prices? A week and a half ago i filled up for $1.85, which was already high. Today i pull in and its $2.25 /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif How can it jump $.40 in less than two weeks, without effecting gasoline? This time last year i was paying $1.59. What really gets me is that regular unleaded actually DROPPED at one station. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Regular is running 1.85-1.90 /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif How can independent truckers even afford to operate?

    1.77 in NJ- 2 bucks in NY.

    Regular was 1.77-1.80 in NJ: 2.00-2.20 in NY

    Sucks but it gotta be done. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    There's some artificial price inflation I tell ya.

    Winter's gonna be rough with an oil heater.

    $2.49 in fresno ca..... depending on where you go.. i drive about 15 miles away to get fuel at a truck stop for $2.07. insane i tell ya.. i think the truckers should strike and just stop in the middle of the fwy/hwy to make a point... especially since i dont use the freeways to get anywhere.

    We're paying 74.9 cents per litre here. Doing the math that is roughly $2.16 per gallon (US dollars and US gallon)

    Deisel prices rarely move around here, but gas prices are crazy. Every Friday for the last 18 months the price jumps up 12-20 cents per litre, then by Monday or Tuesday it's back down and by Thursday if you haven't filled up you know you're going to get screwed on Friday.

    Friday price is 95.3 cents a litre ($2.75/gallon) thursday price is 76.9 cents a litre ($2.20/gallon.)

    This happens at every station, every week.

    Its a good thing I only fill up every other month. The rest is on waste vegetable oil!!! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    With the warm temps you got out there, I'd consider that...

    In the last 3 weeks we have gone from 1.74 to 1.97 a gallon. About the same time I swapped 4.10s for the 2.72s. Too bad I won't get to see the savings in my wallet that I am seeing in the fuel gauge.
