You guys should visit gasbuddy.com I have been using it lately to decide where to fill up. You would be surprised at the difference in prices locally. Probably 50-75 cents difference from high to low.

I agree, gasbuddy is a good source to find the cheapest fuel.
Filled up yesterday for $4.09 a gallon. Highest ever paid, $4.89

For those that use gasbuudy, is there a way to narrow down to diesel? I just checked my zip, and a station I know that doesn't carry diesel was listed. Understandable, but it doesn't help.

Well, I have an update from yesterday - I was driving by the 7/11 on Boat Club Road in far NW Fort Worth (Eagle Mountain Lake) and diesel is $3.449 - it must be a mistake, as that station was $4.499 yesterday. I went home, got the 300SD, went back and filled it up.

Cheapest I have seen it in the DC area Manassas to Harper's ferry is $4.49. That is the going price at all the stations I checked...

I will check out Md and Pa (US 15 and I-78) and NJ I-78 and Rt 17 tomorrow when I head north.

These thread's info gets old pretty quickly, but I got diesel for $3.98 today. How bad is it where you're happy to be just under 4 bucks!!
