Gas vs. Diesel – ugh!

Posted By on September 11, 2006

A picture is worth 1000 words if you are driving a diesel car or truck. This spread is the largest I’ve ever seen. Hopefully we’ll see a little down pressure on diesel fuel too, as some friend traveling in Kentucky spotted diesel fuel priced around $2.50/gallon. (I’m posting from my Palm Treo 700p camera while driving by the ‘normally’ low cost area leader just north of Cincinnati Ohio)

    Geez, and I thought the Southeast was supposed to have the lowest fuel prices. We’re still hovering around $2.20/gallon for gas, $2.80/gallon for diesel.

    $2.65 for RUG, $2.75 for Diesel in central NJ (Princeton, NJ).

    Since I don’t use gas, the spread between NJ and OH RUG does not bother me so much, but it is pretty crazy.
