$402.99 for a tankfull maybe.  Reg gas is over $3.00 here now.  Just in time to totally kill the summer travel industry.  Real good for an already sinking economy.

It was $3.199 locally yesterday.  Higher than gasoline.
There's ZERO logic for diesel to be higher than gas.
I'd be curious how many people are running off road fuel and home heating oil.

It's pretty disgusting.

I just paid $2.86 for heating oil. Diesel is $2.99, gas is $2.95.... they should include the vaseline at that price!

I just got this email today, I know it's nonsense but I'll share. -
>
.
This was originally sent by a retired Coca Cola
executive It came from one of his engineer buddies
who retired from Halliburton. It's worth your
consideration.

Join the resistance!!!! I hear we are going to hit
close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next summer and it might
go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down? We
need to take some intelligent, united action.

Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea. This makes
MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain
day" campaign that was going around las April or May!
The oil companies just laughed at that because they
knew we wouldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by
refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience
to us than it was a problem for them. BUT, whoever
thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can
really work. Please read on and join with us!
By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at
about $1.50 is super cheap. Me t oo! It is currently
$2.79 for regular unleaded in my town. Now that the
oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us
to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at
$1.50 - 1.75, we need to take aggressive action to
teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace..not
sellers. With the price of gasoline going up more each
day, we consumers need to take action. The only way we
are going to see the price of gas come down is if we
hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their
gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.
How?

Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop
buying gas. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if
we all act together to force a price war.

Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T
purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies
(which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL. If they are not
selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their
prices. If they reduce their prices, the other
companies will have to follow suit. But to have an
impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon
and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do! Now,
don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and
I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of
people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us
send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ... and
thos 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 3,000)...and so
on, by the time the message reaches
the sixth group of people, we will have reached over
THREE MILLION consumers.

If those three million get excited and pass this on to
ten friends each, then 30 million people will have
been contacted! If it goes one level further, you
guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people.
That's all!
(If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million
a nd all you have to do is send this to 10 people....
Well, let' face it, you just aren't a mathematician.
But I am . so trust me on this one.) :-)

How long would all that take? If each of us sends
this  e-mail out to ten more people within one day of
receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be
contacted within the next 8 days!!! I'll bet you
didn't think you and I had that much potential, did
you! Acting together we can make a difference.
If this makes sense to you, please pass this message
on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL
THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP
THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK

Buckle UP!!!

I saw on the news today that gas in Brooklyn, NY was $4.50 per gallon!!!

I believe $4.19 somewhere in California.

A previous post suggested Vasoline with every fill up.  NOT A BAD IDEA!!!

I filled up in Yuma, AZ two days ago at $2.919, the highest so far on the trip.

I found out a very interesting thing well into this 5000 mi trip.

At large truck stops the price you see posted from the highway for diesel is for trucks. If you use the auto pump in front instead of the truck pumps in the rear the average price is $0.08 lower?? Still haven't figured that one out but am now taking advantage of this knowledge.

The surface around the truck pumps is usually a big mess also.

Gusc, there is a heavy vehicle tax of 8 cents per gallon in Arizona, but it is not intended to apply to motorhomes. Some of the smaller station operators have some problems figuring it out and will send a motorhome to a truck stop.

It probably would pay to make sure if there will be a problem at smaller stations. I've been chased out of the truck side in a truck stop, but the person who did that didn't say why.

For what it's worth.

Tom,

Thanks, so this difference is only in AZ?

I was hoping I had discovered a good deal for the whole trip!!

I, too, have been told not to use the truck pumps and at other places have been told to use them??

 "Just in time to totally kill the summer travel industry.  Real good for an already sinking economy.  "

The "summer price spike" is normally the two week period about now for the last 20 years or so.

If nothing happens and Nigeria output (cut 30% by terrorists) comes back fuel will as usual be 20c?cheaper for the 4th of July weekend.

With only 41/2% unemployment , and the flippers scared out of housing , what part of the economy is sinking?

I have been putting money aside for the first scenicruiser fill up of 175 gallons while fixing up the rest of the coach. I guess I should have filled it up first. I feel like I am saving up for a down payment  on CA real estate.
