Diesel Post

I see someone asked to not hi-jack his or he thread and thought I would start one as several have posted about fuel costs. The diesel prices at least here in Alberta are cheaper than gas prices. If you sign up for a Pilot or Flying J card (new one) then you get a further reduction at the pump as long as you use the RV lane or the truck lanes.I'm not sure what diesel is going for in Montana as that is the closest to my home town, but I fueled up last Sunday for about $1.04 a liter with all the reductions. You also get a reduction for propane but not sure what that is as I have not brought my 5th wheel in to town yet to get ready for my trip. You can also dump your sewage for I think 5 bucks but there are lots of free dump stations if you care to look.

Gas in southern NH has gone down from 3.99 to 3.61 in the last 3-4 wks, good day's might be coming. Listen to me "celabrating " 3.61 gas--I'm an idot I should be REVOLTING, CARRYING SIGNS, BURNING GAS STATIONS---------- NOT. I have to get gas & go to the dump, wash our TT , get packed for Four Seasons CG, in Naples ME.

I guess we are lucky when I compare the costs in places like Washington State but we are all over the map here in Canada. The price of oil on the world market is slowly trending downward so hopefully it will continue in time for the summer vacation peak.

Don't burn a gas station.. that is just a working stiff like you.. go burn Mobile, Exon, and or Texaco's head office.. and or the CEO's home...
