all states that have failed monetary increases in their state budgets routinely add this increases to the diesels tax base,as all over the road trucking companies pay mileage taxes every quarter for every mile driven in that state,so everyone who buy's diesel is helping that states budget.
offroad diesel that farmers use in their equipment has no tax placed on it as farmers are exempt.

There are times on I-90/94 see more diesel powered truck on the road than passenger vehicles. Train engines and ships also run on diesel. Hear freelance truckers complain to get a load, can't even get enough money to pay for the diesel fuel.

Been a long time since fuel was priced on production, distribution, and a fair profit price. Around since 1973 and prior, since then has been all supply and demand. Apparently the demand for diesel is still high yet.

We just got back from Italy a couple of months, cost of diesel fuel there was the equivalent of $9.56 per US gallon.

1.77 for regular 3.77 for diesel. 2.00 difference. I'm starting to smell a rat. I can understand 1.00 difference because of heating oil and the extra refining for the sulfur but you can now fill a gas car twice for one diesel fill. smh

What is wrong with you guys? Diesel is dropping in line with gas over here in AZ!



Is this a Diesel #1 issue?

I filled up in Altoona, IA for $2.79 on my way back from CO this past weekend. Diesel prices in CO, NE and IA all were still in the low to mid $3.00 range. Diesel still remains well over $3.00 a gallon in IL and WI. This is starting to get annoying. I'm not looking for $1.99 diesel, but $2.25 -$2.50 seems fair; even during the heating oil season. With the exception of the past 2-3 days and the first week or two in November, I think this winter has been fairly mild (especially compared to last winter).

Today in PA the fuel tax went up 0.10 cents a gallon, the first of 3 yearly increases, along with registrations, licenses, inspection stickers, and who knows what else. :angry:

Diesel $1.13/L, Gas $0.89/L In Canadian Dollars.

Diesel $3.61/gal, Gas $2.84/gal In U.S. Dollars.

Slowly dropping, but still not closing the gas gap.

For most of December gas has dropped slower than diesel here RUG is 1.99 / Diesel is 2.65 today.

Going to Vegas Thursday in the so I've been scanning Gas Buddy for prices looks like diesel is about 3.00 along the interstate but I can knock at least .25/gal off that price if I get a few blocks away in most populated areas.

CTD still goes at least an extra 200 miles on a tank that's $5 cheaper to fill compared to the car it replaced.

Diesel---$3.14 (70% more than 87)
^^^ That if F-ing ridiculous! The spread I mean, that crazy!

Diesel - $1.06/L - $3.38/gal USD
87 - $0.87/L - $2.78/gal USD

As of today, diesel can be found in Calgary for C$0.989/L. (It can also be found for C$1.109/L.)

A small bit of good cheer, as the oilpatch layoffs, cutbacks, and salary reductions devastate the people of this city (including my wife).
