Gas rising again, nearly at parity with diesel

Gas up 20 cents here in the last week to 3.56 a gallon, diesel 3.70 as of today. That`s the closest they have been here in quite some time with only a 14 cent difference.

$3.56? Count your blessings. Its $3.75 where I live. And we just got off a several month spell of two refineries being down. It went down for about 2 weeks, and now its back up again. While everyone else was paying $3.40 a gal, we were paying $3.90 - $4.10. Diesel is $3.79 here right now.

In my area of Central California Diesel and Reg Unleaded have been very close to parity for several weeks.

Today at the "cheap no brand" station, Regular Unleaded $3.84 and Diesel $3.89. The branded fuel along the highway, Reg Unleaded $3.99 Diesel $4.09.

In the past several months cheapest diesel has been is ~$3.80 and unleaded ~$3.50.

$3.08 yesterday at Sam's Club for regular unleaded. Guess I should count my blessings! Ours is usually one of the cheaper states. It was even a few cents cheaper over the 4th down at the ocean.

Well, at today's dollar exchange rate, that works out to be $4.65 in US dollars for a US gallon of regular unleaded. Sales tax and something called excise tax, are the main reason it's about a buck a gallon more here. I feel for those in Quebec, where they add another $0.50 per gallon on top of that for taxes. We like towing our TT through the USA for the lower (relative) gas prices, and the beautiful CG's you have there, not to mention wonderful people.
