FYI - last year the excuse was hurricanes....
this year they are mostly reoaired, but refining less to keep prices up...

WHO in the world would ever THINK there may be price fixing

I hope the real truckers are getting a break cuz this 44 gal @ a pop is terrible !

course I wouldn't drive anything else

personally, we "real truckers " don't get any breaks on price. Companies can. if the sign up with this truck stop or that one as their "sole supplier". usually this is from 3-5 cents per gallon. again, personally, I don't like the idea of being "locked in" to a certain brand. Most of the time I buy mine from the independents, and if I pay cash, I can still get a nickel break... wooo hoooo!
I'll continue to pay the extra nickel; I buy sometimes a 600 gallons in a week, and I'll be whacked if I'm gonna carry that kind of cash on me!

I almost hate to post this but, with gas prices rising, diesel seems to be falling around here a bit. We're seeing some 2.59 fuel...

Diesel is about 2.79 here in Union and gas is the same. Drove all the way to Hannibal and back via St. Charles and Gas was a whopping 3.20 a gallon average and Diesel was about 2.59!

in a way, it's nice to see Gas higher than diesel again! But those prices are still a killer! Cost 40 bucks to fill the wife's car last week!

Interesting fuel price comparison from 6 months ago.

Diesel in the Ontario/Diamond Bar/Walnut areas varies from $3.09 to $2.93/gallon as of yesterday.
Gasoline is $2.50 to $2.69/gallon!

Looks like the oil-burners are taking it in the shorts again.
