Gas prices seem to be dropping here locally every day. Reg is down to $2.46...

When did you ever think that $2.46 was a good deal? Smiley

Anyway, our bus, just like yours, runs on diesel. What are some of the prices near you on that? Here in central Florida it's $2.99 and not dropping as fast if any at all!

Diesel prices are still sky high compared to gasoline!  I just filled my TDI tonight for $2.84 and gasoline was $2.33 or a 51 cent difference!  I don't know if I paid 51 cents more even during October last year.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

I got ya all beat. Ya know what I paid for Diesel today?? ZERO..ZIP..NADA. You know why?? he.. he..I didn't buy any today. LMAO
But really. Diesel has dropped down to $2.39 a gallon. That's what I paid for it a year ago this past June. And just 2 Moths before we headed out for our summer vacation in April of 05 I thought I was getting ROBBED @ $1.89 a gallon. What a difference a year makes. LOL

Last weekend a Pilot station on I-71  was advertising diesel if you paid cash 2.36 a gallon, and gasoline was 2.03 at the same place......I-71 runs north and south in Ohio this was north of Columbus about 40 minutes!
