    Here it changed as soon as I traded my diesel truck in for a gas one. Figures. And the diesel got almost 10 more mpg.

      It can’t. It’s only that way in a few place’s because of contract pricing and low sales.

      Diesel is first out of the stacks, but it has to be re-refined because of the ultra-low sulfur requirements. It’s not cheap to refine a fuel twice…

              I have quit using my upside app for the last month and a half. It's only been 1 to 3 cents per gallon when I need to fill my truck up around here. So I have been using my walmart+ to get 10 cents off per gallon.

                Yeah then it’s definitely not worth it then .

                  This was in 2019 at the little store in Briggs. It was half way between the house and the new place we had bought. I was making the drive every day for months building our new place so it helped us a lot.

                    I talked to a fellow towing a toy hauler with a 6.2 gasser a few weeks ago . He said he was about to switch to a new 6.7 diesel. His take was they’re gonna run the price of gas up to make electric vehicles look more appealing, yet keep the diesel price where it’s at since the country runs on diesel to get goods to the stores.

                    Interesting theory.

                        Fuel prices are nuts here!

                        Off topic, but saw this recently in my out of state travels and was cornfused- no explanation as to what separated one flavor from the other- (there was an upcharge to the premium- .10-.20 cents or so)

                          Several years ago, during the run-up of oil to over $100, the (federal) congressmen from oil-producing areas gave a presentation to their colleagues about oil production. At the time, diesel fuel was more expensive than gasoline. In response to the higher price of diesel, during the presentation, one of the democrat congresswomen asked the question, "Why don't they just drill for more diesel?!"
                          That is who is running the country.

                              But the more logical argument is, DUMPING TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO THE MARKET these last 3 years is what caused the rise in prices across the board.
                              But….but…..everyone got their PPP and stimulus ‘free’ monies (well, not everybody)……
