So what? The goal is to get the car in front of me off the road. The state can spend it hookers and blow for all I care. Just get ****ing mouth breather off the road.

No way, I don't believe your politicians would ever mis-appropriate those, or any funds, just no way..

The only time I've seen diesel below gasoline in CA since I moved here 5 years ago was right away before the increased diesel tax when gasoline would fluctuate and more recently when gasoline soars in price. Wednesday I topped off at 2.95 for diesel when gas was 2.19. I use Gas Buddy and get the lowest priced stations too.

Need to move the motorhome from SoCal to Norcal. Now would be a good time with lower gas prices!

$2.35 diesel RUG $1.49. Although diesel for the last three years or so stayed at $3.09. Even when RUG swung from $2.99 to $2.25. I am surprised that off road diesel is selling for $1.60. I thought that fed and local taxes were around $0.60 per gallon.

Regular gas is about $1.45 here...premium around $2.20ish.....diesel varies....between $2.40 to 2.59....seems to be dropping much more slowly.

At my current rate of driving a tank of diesel is going to last me about 5 months so....

Anyone here using the "TSD Logistics Fuel Program"? I an thinking about signing up, people on the truck and RV forum are getting some pretty good discounts. You don't have to be a big user to get the discounts either.
