"Here We Go Again" Cost of diesel


Been watching the price of diesel for some time now; just yesterday I seen a big jump back up to over $4.00/gal. I see it at 4.159 and closest to home it went to 4.099. I donít know about everybody else but it takes a big dent out of my pocketbook every time I fill up. I find that Iíve been parking the F-350 a lot more than I would like to and Iíve been driving a PT Cruiser back & forth to work.

Bill, its just because they can. No other reason as far as I am concerned. They have used all the excuses time and again, now they don't even use them. They just raise the price because they can!!

Diesel!! Yeah, how about heating oil. I can park the truck and not use any fuel but cannot stand a cold house. Called to get my tanks filled today and it is at $3.54 per gallon. Will get them filled on Thursday and fire up the coal burner add-on unit for the rest of the winter. I don't know how people will afford to heat their homes up here in the Northeast. One prediction stated that it will cost a homeowner between $3000 and $4000 to heat this winter. Even the price of coal is up. Coal man stated that China is buying it like there is no tomorrow.

I live in western Va not in coal country but not far from it. In our news paper there was a story that coal production will be down over 50% in 3 or 4 years. The EPA is doing away with mountain top removal and the seams if coal are just too thin to mine. We see trains of 200 cars each carrying 100 tons of coal go by all day every day, and it's been that way for 60 years that I can remember. I talked to a miner on Wyoming a while back he told me he was working in a seam that was 500 feet thick. The problem with western coal, he said was it had a very short shelf life of 2 weeks after it is mined, so it cant be shipped over seas.

Lynwood,
Your statement about "western coal" having a very limited "shelf life" intrigued me so I did a bit of searching and could find nothing about a limited shelf life. All indications are that we are now and in the future will ship much of our coal to China and other Eastern countries. I could find nothing to support your mining friends claim of "limited shelf life". If you have a reference I'd gladly take a look at it. A very interesting subject. Thanks, Dennis.

Don't see the shelf life myself. I used to haul coal on trains daily. The coal from the west comes to MI. Which at times will take way more than a week to get there. Then it is unloaded to a pile that sits until it is used, sometimes for months. I serviced 2 different power plants and this was the case at both.

This of course is you meaning the coal from the west is out of the strip mining being done in the western states.

I filled up at $3.89 yesterday here in Massachusetts. It's on the rise along with my heating oil. I'm headed outside to split some more wood.

Madison Wi. $4.20. Up 30 cents in less than a week. What about heating fuel? This is going to get much worse.

We were at $3.999 here in the middle of Kanas and there's a refinery about a hundred miles south of here!

Canada's fuel is taxed to death, yet we are a net exporter of oil.
BC's diesel prices range from $4.75 to $5.60 per US gallon. (as per Gasbuddy)
My home town averages is $5.16
