shocked at the pump

Went to fill the truck and noticed diesel is now cheaper than gasoline. Diesel $2.85, gasoline $2.97. I hope they don't want me to feel good about it.

yeah they just did that to justify you paying 2.85, when diesel is 1.20 and gas is 1.40 then we will rejoice

I was also surprised to see diesel lower than 93octane gas...

However, even though I was happy to see that, I reminded myself I'm still paying near $3.00 a gallon...
