Gas and diesel prices

Just curious. Diesel (here 30 miles north of Dallas) has gone up to 65-70 cents higher per gallon than regular gasoline. Is that typical over the rest of the country?

We’ve paid $2.69 to $3.24 per gallon on our travels in November. I always feel good to get $2.99. We use Gas Buddy as our search tool.

It's over $4 per gallon here in California. We have "special" gasoline and diesel.

Here in AZ in August/Sept. I think gas prices had risen to within 5-10 cents of the diesel price. Now it is back to around 35-40.

I think the difference in some places is the state tax. We were in Iowa/Minn 2 weeks ago and I think some places were 60-70 cents difference.

Diesel fuel competes with heating oil in the winter therefore the price typically goes up. The two are similar from a refining perspective.

Where I live in Texas, I'm seeing gas prices falling but diesel pretty much remains the same. Our diesel is in the $2.90's but gas has fallen to the $2.40's

Gas in the local stations ~20 miles north of NY's capital district is about $2.75. Diesel is about $3.19 per gallon though I just filled at $3.15 at my usual station. It seems to be dropping a little from the high of $3.30/gallon a month ago

North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama (where we have been lately) $2.99 - $4.05. Truck Stops seem to be higher. Looking forward to being back in Texas!

It’s not the actual price I am wondering about. I guess we are fortunate to still be under $3.00 per gallon. But in the 14 years of owning a diesel I have never seen a price differential of 70 cents over regular gasoline. Diesel $2.89/regular gas $2.19 this morning.

Only once in those 14 yrs has diesel ever dropped below regular gasoline here. And only for a couple weeks. Unlike the old days just before I bought my first diesel.

You can blame that one on me. Right after I bought my first diesel teh price between them has flip flopped and the difference increases each time I get a new one

I work in Oil Production and as the old Bartles and James commercial would say “Thanks for your support”!

Don’t worry we are working on increasing production of crude that is better suited to refining to diesel. Y’all just be sure to support “drill baby drill”!

Different tax bases make a difference as well.

Several weeks ago we took the Monte south to the Palm Springs, Ca. area. We traveled down Hwy 395. Traveling through the little town of Bridgeport, Ca. just south of the Nevada border we noticed diesel was selling for $5.29 a gallon. A short distance farther south in Lee Vining near Mono Lake, it was $5.14. Luckily I had just filled up at the new tribal owned truck stop just out of Gardnerville, Nv for $3.29 a gallon.
