When it snowed I put my beloved 240D in the garage. The other day I took it out to discover Diesel at $1.85 a gallon , up from $1.29 in the Fall. What happened to drive prices up, literally overnight? When will they come down? What was the market cause?

The oil companies want to make some $$$. Guess what, the Fed tapped the interest rates a well. Here we'll be enduring about 9 months of trickle down economics

Yep, I just paid $34 to fill my SD at $1.899 a gallon, and I've been shopping. Most stations in this area are $1.919 to $1.999. I was paying $1.35 last month.

I really feel for the diesel drivers in the Northeast. I'm paying $1.39 for Premium Diesel here in the Atlanta area. This is up from $1.14 less than a month ago. I felt like I was being ripped off. Now I'm thankful.
