We haven't seen prices under $3 in years and years. When it gets down to $3.40 we are ecstatic!

Gas is $3.27 yesterday--diesel is around $3.79--depends on where you buy it.
I only put Chevron in my truck--get much better mileage and it can be a bit more pricie but I just cut down driving.

(Diesel)has gone to $4.79 at one point)I dont know how truckers make a living.

LOL come on down--its warmer here also--well it does get HOT but remember its not the heat its the humidity---:

Gas will go up about the time school is out and then settle back down.
Its a game the industry plays with us.

Regular gas $3.65 - diesel $4.27

I noticed the last tank of gas in my pickup must have now changed to summer blend as the lie-o-meter (output on dash that shows current MPG) went up 4/10 MPG just like that.

Surprising too/also how much saving that is a fill-up.

Gas is steady at the $3.27 mark.
Was down to 3.17 for about 2 wks.

Coaltrain I notice if I need an oil change even before the (change oil Light) comes on--my mileage will drop.
My trucks always been touchy that way.
Vortec V-6. Still running 5/30--have the cleanest tail-pipe in town.
Runs clean.(I watch the tail-pipe--no its not funny--Dad taught me that.
He said you can see oil burning problems coming.

4/14/14..... NW WI..... E10=$3.64-9......

It took a while to drop down to this price from $3.69-9.... It popped up to that price really quick...

Coincidentally, I had 94 cents off in grocery coupons....
Road diesel is $4.04-9
I don't know about off road diesel... Haven't needed any for a while now...

I would be real surprised if gas drops any lower than this the rest of the summer/tourist season here....

I got a feeling crop planting fuel isn't going to catch a break this spring....

Hope you have better luck....

5/2/14.... NW WI.... E10=$3.64-9......

Took about 3 weeks to drop down to this price from $3.69-9.... Then over nights popped back up to the higher price.... And within less than a week went back down again.... Strange....

I had 21 cents a gallon in grocery discounts available... Made a little swoop at least...

Haven't been to the station with off road diesel to see what they are doing for a while now... I'm going to guess that and K1 are still winter high...

Take care...

Still hanging on at $3.75 here for a long time. Diesel dropped to $4.20.

Need to buy heating oil and mid-June is usually the best price. Going to have to do a lot of price dropping in the next 6 weeks.......

Diesel is maintaining a high.
And I remember that diesel was the fuel of the day a number years ago---who can afford it?
I dont know how truckers make a living.
