My usual fueling location is a truck stop just west of Tallahassee. For the first time in quite a while, diesel there is less expensive ($2.169) than regular unleaded gasoline ($2.209).

Yes, I believe Gainesville has some of the highest gas prices in Florida...
and it's too damn far from the coast! Why live on a peninsula that frequently gets devastated by hurricanes if you're not at least near the ocean?

Florida is overrated...if you plan to come here permanently, don't. South Florida is already sucking up all the state's water as it is. Soon a gallon of clean water will cost more than a gallon of diesel.

Diesel is cheaper than premium gas by a few pfennigs at most stations in the NH coastal proximity.

But, the ppg of diesel is still a hefty sum at 2.359.

Today for the first time in as long as I've been in this town (few months), diesel dropped in price: from 2.49 to 2.35. I actually let out a holler of joy. Summer is on the way kids ...

Diesel here is $2.69 a gallon. Is this the beginning of the real crunch? Are we going over $3 soon? When biodiesel costs less that dino-diesel, it will be a better day.
