Diesel got up to $5.19 here in SoCal, but I paid $4.65 a few days ago. Still too much.

We're getting down to 4.29 in many places now around here. The truck stops are down to about 4.15-4.20......I hope it keeps falling. I filled up at 4.39 last time, way lower than a month ago....highest I've paid yet was 4.89.

However, my fuel has been free lately because I accumulated enough reward points on my credit/fuel card to earn a $100 fuel card! thats like 600ish miles of free driving at current prices.

Lowest I have seen here in northeast Tennessee is $4.25 per gallon, but the Nascar race is this week and there are oodles and oodles of diesel pickup trucks and motorhomes from all over the country here this week, so that may be why prices are staying high?
