Default Gas prices in your area?

I'm paying the equivalent of $10.33 per imperial gallon for Diesel
Petrol isn't much cheaper !

Diesel was always cheaper than petrol, this is until a lot of people started switching to it.
Forty percent of new car sales are for diesel powered vehicles. So they put up the tax on diesel to make up for the shortfall in revenue.

3.65 a gallon here in WV. Thankfully, I only have to commute 1 mile to work. If it wasnt for 1 hill that goes near vertical, for about 400 yards, I would ride a bike.

Have any of you experimented with a cooking oil / diesel mix ? I'm told you can go 50/50 without any modifications.

$3.45 here and I put on nearly 1000 miles a week. Next time I see an oilman up for president, I'm taking out my IRA and investing! (not meant to start an argument, just an observation) Speaking of that... I lost $960 last quarter in my IRA... This economy is just Faaaantastic!

$3.45/gal? We haven't had that for 6 months. We're going at $3.90 here in So Cal. Wait until Rudy chimes in.
