Saturday, 3.39, Today 3.59. Thats regular 89, diesel also went up 20 cents. This is at a station that has the lowest prices, closer stations have gone up 40-50 cents or more in the past 24 hours.

Price gouging?

I had the pleasure this morning to fill up a couple of 5 Gal jugs 1- diesel and 2- gas plus a top off on the truck. $4.49 for diesel, $4.05 for gas= $126.00 the truck only took 12 gal and the pump shut off for another swipe of the card. Oh I was carrying my .45 so I wasn't held up, I was just held up by buffoons.
Thanks to all in charge!

I had a half tank in the car, but we were out anyway, so I decided to fill up at the local Sam's Club, where I always buy gas.

It was crazy. So many people were trying to fill up that it looked like a half hour wait.

Decided I will try again another day, or buy somewhere else. We do not use much gas anyway, being retired and limiting our travels due to virus concerns...

I can actually handle the high fuel prices for the amounts I use. However, the food prices are out of control.

Check for a local fuel supplier that delivers home heating oil and has pumps. They often have dyed diesel. Another source is some farm supply outlets that sell fuel like Co-op.

That said, the price difference seems to be getting slimmer and slimmer.

If this keeps going, I think I may have to get a flock of sheep to keep the grass down, cause I wont be able to afford fuel for the tractor

If you bought fuel on Wednesday you saved .20 a liter in NS. Two days in a row over .10 cent jumps of course I used the last of my diesel on Wednesday and planned a town run next monday.

N.S. invoking interrupter clause after just raising gas prices by 10 cents two days in a row
