I think around here the signage is tied directly to the oil futures prices. Driving this morning, we were at $5.99 and I was thinking of taking the truck out for more fuel.

I burned $243 in my Freightliner yesterday, and then switched trucks and put $181 in the F450 from 1/4 tank.

Well, of course they are tied to futures prices!
They charge according to what they are going to have to pay to refill their storage tanks.

This was my fill up on the way home from the beach.

And this is what I paid.

I saved a whole $10 on a fill. But hey, that is 1/6 of the cost of a half gallon bottle of decent bourbon!

So you don't think I understand that.

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment about each pump addressing the price in real time to the futures market.

No offense intended.

Wow diesel lower than petrol. We don’t see that here!
Diesel is typically close to a dollar per litre cheaper than petrol as road tax is not added to it , we don't have what you call farm or red diesel ...... here you buy what's called ruc (road user charges) in blocks of 1000km or 621 miles , the price varies depending on what the max glw weight of your vehicle is.

Topped off after the trip to the beach at $5.23 and was happy to find it so cheap. Saved a whopping 7 cents per gallon with the Mudflap app. First time I used it. Fortunately the station was on my route running errands.

Jeebus. I just typed that. Happy to find diesel at $5.23. SMH. and FJB.

Paid attention to the signs yesterday when I was at one of the stations. Diesel is $5.25 here in west central MO. I never thought I'd see California prices here.

Who wants to bet against diesel above 10 a gallon before the end of the year?
I’m not, they are punishing the truckers for daring to complain about the “regime” and their policies which in turn is punishing all Americans. Brandon wasn’t elected, he was installed.

BlackRock corporation controls many countries and apparently ours as well. They were the first to call for all corporations to push the lgbtlmnop agenda or they would punish them financially. And they can because that corp. is worth more than most countries GDP. Most people haven’t even heard of them, they like it that way.

Fuel Prices

Just wondering how much are you paying a gallon for a fuel where you live? What's the best price you've seen?
I live in Summerfield, Fl. At the Pilot station on I-75 it was around 3.50 a gallon about 20 miles south of here in lecanto I found it for 2.85. I went back to refill and it had went up to 3.00 in lecanto though.
6.46 a gal in Californication!!!

Diesel up to 2.72/ litre this weekend - up 10c/litre this week.

A mate of mine was telling me yesterday that he's found a source of veg based transformer oil at $400 per 1000 Litre (275 gal?) tote tank ..... i'm seriously thinking about trying one out.
