Diesel prices to spike this winter?

This morning on the local radio news there was a blurb about diesel and heating oil stocks at abnormally low levels for this time of year. The analyst they spoke with seemed to think that unless the levels rise rapidly we'll see a big price spike in October. Anyone hear anything to this effect? I'm in New Jersey and paying anywhere from $2.70 to $2.75 a gallon currently.

In Michigan we have been steady at 2.89 for a long time. Some times it goes up to around 2.93 but I have not seen it any higher then that. Also when it hits 2.93 it is only for a couple days. Some places don't even change it.

But I have not heard of any price spikes any time soon for us in Michigan.

Jeez-I was complaining about diesel prices the other day, I didn't realize that they were so much higher elsewhere! I'm about 30 minutes southeast of Trenton so I'm close to a major NJ Turnpike interchange (7A), I-195, and I-295, which may have something to do with it. Within 5 miles of my house there are 4 truck stops that usually stay within $0.05 of each other.

That's a pretty widespread myth. Diesel has to be "cracked" from crude oil just like everything else. Prices have a lot less to do with how it's refined and more to do with demand, taxation, etc...

anywhere from 2.89 to 2.99 in Indiana,

I think I'm switching to B10 or some other biodiesel at least until winter hits. Anyone else hate this new fuel? Maybe its just my dinosaur that don't like it....
