Your reigon is just getting RIPPED pure and simple, there is just no common sense explaination.

We are averaging about $2.75, tell me how it could be almost a dollar difference anywhere in the lower 48 without gouging?

Have no fear I've heard congress is going to look into it $$$HAHA$$$.

(Hope they have more sucsess than when they stuck there big noses in MLB's steriod problems).

I'm sporting the '91 Civic. Not too popular with the Ladies, but saves me like $40 a week seriously though, forty bucks a week!

10-27-2005, 08:35 PM
The thing that KILLS me is,,,,,,,,,
The price dropped from $2.95 to $2.75 just 8 hours after I filled up! It seems to get me every time! [laugh]

10-27-2005, 09:42 PM
diesel $2.79 and gas i think is $2.78 here on For wainwright, AK My dad told me that back in WV where he lives offroad diesel for his tractors is like $2.58. That's insane no taxes on that crap and it's that much.

10-27-2005, 09:44 PM
Most places around here Diesel is between $3.08 and $3.45, but I found a place that was $2.84.

10-27-2005, 10:02 PM
I promised my friends I'd do a burnout for them if diesel prices got under $3 a gallon... anyone know how tire prices are doing? :D

(last i checked, gas was 2.25 here and diesel 3.04...)

Flying J (South Dallas) dropped to $2.59 today :p

10-28-2005, 09:05 AM
2.59 at Flying J in South Dallas 2.74 at Loves in Midlothian,TX
and according to Gasbuddy (http://www.fortworthgasprices.com/index.aspx?s=Y&fuel=D&tme_limit=48) it's 2.39 in Denton,TX.
I find that one hard to believe.

10-29-2005, 08:23 PM
$2.99 in Arlington, Fairfax, and Annandale. :rolleyes:
$2.69 in Haymarket Va. :)
$2.59 in Opal Va. :D

I saved $16 on 38.78 gallons.
That's like getting 6.15 gallons free.

What I find amazing is the fact that the wholesale prices have been pretty much stagnant the last week or so ($1.80 +/- a few cents). I am not a rocket scientist nor did I stay in a Holiday last night but this tells me someone has been scr*&^ng us for a while. Don't know about you, but I am accustomed to getting kissed. To make my point, a 7-11 this evening was still at $3.19 this evening. Just around the corner fuel was $2.69!

10-30-2005, 01:31 AM
Yeah I hear that. Here in Yuma AZ diesel is still running 2.89 so its not that bad but last week it was 2.99 so I would be nice for a bigger drop.

10-30-2005, 01:13 AM
$2.70 here in covington, flying j in jackson claims $2.47. I hope it keeps coming down :D

10-30-2005, 01:42 AM
jsu drove past a station $3.49...A few miles away $2.99! Getting better!

10-30-2005, 05:40 AM
[verymad] STILL $3.70 HERE [verymad] Spencer,In

10-30-2005, 06:21 AM
Diesel at one station here, dropped from $3.49 to $3.09 yesterday. Gas is $2.05-2.69 here.

The truckstop here in town was $3.63 and saw that it was $3.49 last night.

10-30-2005, 06:23 AM
Just filled up yesterday at $2.99. Would like to see it go lower still.

10-30-2005, 08:16 AM
We are starting to see it fall here too. $2.59 last night. Something closer to $2.00 even would be nice for a change.
Am I Dreaming now? [whistle]

10-30-2005, 10:51 AM
I'd sell my mom for 2.59 diesel right now its 2.99 around here

10-30-2005, 11:03 AM

10-30-2005, 11:47 AM
weaverville n.c. 3.49 exit 13 on 26. exit 19 on 26 is 2.85. told station owner i will no longer fuel at his station until he quits the gouging. 64 cent difference. over few pennies its not worth the trouble but i will drive 6 miles for 12 dollars in minute. :confused:

10-30-2005, 11:52 AM
Its about time! The local station in town was charging 3.24, and still is while about 2 miles up the way I got my diesel for....2.79. The thing that bugs me is the overnight change is diesel prices, it was at 3.09 at the cheapest I could find around the buckeye area, and now it is a 2.79?! I'm going to have to call 10 yards for BS here......Its nice though, seeing the price drop, I remember when my mom though 1.29 a gallon was steep. Lol

10-30-2005, 03:21 PM
We've been $3.29 for a while now, and I've seen it for more closer to the freeway exits, and out in the boondocks.

There was an article in the paper saying it's droppin everywhere but here, even California which historically has been a bit more $$$.

I'm ready for it to drop.


11-02-2005, 06:02 PM
@$2.99 now here locally.

11-02-2005, 07:22 PM
2.55 here at the cheapest place,,,pilot station at finley............he is dropping about 4 cents a day............bama

11-02-2005, 07:35 PM

WOW. Smiles for $2.69/$2.59 a gal. I may not walk AS funny at that price but I wouldn't be smiling. It was $2.8X last SAT when I filled the wifes truck. I'm wondering how low the tank in my '99 will be when I get it back from the dealer. [eyecrazy]


11-02-2005, 07:40 PM
$3.24 here in south-east idaho, while gas is $2.59. I am getting a lot of crap from my buddies for driving a diesel, and right now I don't have a reply. [verymad]

11-02-2005, 08:20 PM
I'm closing all the "price" threads so we can (hopefully) only have one at a time running on the forum, instead of several at once.
