    It's worse here! While fuel is cheaper, the spread between regular gasoline and diesel is further apart. Regular gas at my favorite station is $3.03 and diesel is $4.99. This crazy difference in prices is really making me doubt being a diesel owner for the first time in 27 years. I've had a 6.2L or 6.5L as a daily driver for all of those 27 years, but if this stupid spread between gasoline and diesel continues to persist, I may be looking at getting a gasoline daily driver, which makes me really sad. I'm a diesel lover through and through. But the past few years it's been harder and harder to justify owning a diesel, as most of the benefits of diesel ownership have slowly been eroded away.

    Recent fuel costs are no accident. This is absolutely by design. Many politicians and activists have said as much, to include a former president. It was a matter of time and opportunity.

    I remember a discussion we had here, maybe 10 or 20 years ago, about the cost difference between gas and Diesel. At the time, Diesel was still quite a bit less than gas. The suggestion was that, at some time in the future, the power that be would be equating the cost of motor fuels with their BTU content. Not long after, the taxes on Diesel went up, exceeding that of gas, and the cost of Diesel began rising above gas. Here we are today, with the concept out of control. As I recall, what we see today is what we thought would happen, despite the deniers (I was one, I think). As with most things, once .gov gets their claws into something, fat chance turning it back. Everything to an extreme, as far as they can run it.

    We have a jackazz that keeps reporting $4.99 Diesel to gasbuddy, but it's never true. I don't know if he's an idiot or just evil. Anyhow, we're pushing up closer and closer to $6.00 here. There's gonna be a lot of cold houses this winter... Heating oil is already in tight supply. The dealers are refusing to take on new customers.

    Nine days till reckoning.

    Foreign policy (such as it is) is driving the increase in cost differential between gas/diesel, and is having a huge affect on winter heating oil and a rise in the cost of LNG. They're shipping it to Europe to fight Putin. Europe doesn't want our gasoline.

    A sidebar about the cost differential between gas/diesel... Prior to the introduction of ULSD in 2007, the US petro market couldn't export diesel fuel to Europe because they were ahead of us in diesel fuel emissions regulations. That all changed in 2007 with the introduction of ULSD here in the US - not surprisingly, EU's diesel fuel regs matched those in the US almost perfectly. As a result, the US diesel fuel market suddenly became a world-wide commodity.

    Wow! Best price around here is about $5.65. Range oil is about $8.00 with a 60 gallon limit, and it's getting cold at night...

    Knoxville 4.74 to 5.23 and I see TA must have gone to dynamic pricing. They will change price several times a day. But cash or credit is the same where Pilot is charging 0.05 more for credt
