The gasoline diesel spread continues

gas diesel spread

While driving home on Friday night its hard not to notice that gasoline prices continue to inch lower, but being a diesel advocate (biodiesel), its hard not to grimmice when noticing the $1.42 spread. Ouch.


  • Our spread is different. Around the corner from me, diesel is $2.99 while gas is $2.19. Sure, it’s not ideal but the spread is about half of what you’re seeing.

  • That’s an easier spread to take … although I noticed that while driving home today that most truck stops were selling diesel under $3 and unleaded regular around $1.85. (closer to that $1 spread)

    Although we heat with natural gas, I was wondering how much the NE is paying for heating oil since diesel hasn’t come down all that much?
