just doesnt make sense, 2 years ago i was paying 40 cents a gallon less for diesel than gas. Now gas has dropped from 2.99 a gallon to 2.43 a gallon, while diesel has risen from 3.19 to 3.25 per gallon. Sorry for the complaining just had to sound off after filing truck. :mad: :mad: OK now i feel better :devil2:

Camp said something a while back about they cook the diesel some more to make gas to drive the price down some when they are under pressure.

Yesterday a couple of the stations raised their diesel prices a dime, a couple of others lowered theirs by a dine. Go figure

Yesterday here, in the morning most stations were at $3.09 to $3.19. By early evening, none were still $3.09, but most had raised to $3.45, $3.49 and one even went up to $3.65. Now, if that ain't gouging, I don't know what is. I always thought there was some law that only allowed fuel prices to jump 7-8 cents per day. I guess I was dreaming. There ought to be a law like that IMO, it would help stop some of this gouging.

Took opens to the sale barn 48 miles from here. Filled the F-350, almost $100. It was $3.18. Checked prices all the way there, and saw it as high as $3.58 and as low as $3.09. What's going on?

Several major refineries are still down from Katrina and Rita.
Diesel is being converted to gasoline to meet demand as it carries more political clout.

I wonder how crowder is getting along with the idea of waiting to buy farm fuel till diesel goes down. :D
