    here in California the gas tax money is used to supply governor Gavin Newsome in hair gel.

    just like high school cheap gas and i'm grounded
     
  4. I hope diesel gets cheaper here. My 1949 TD14 A international crawler hasn't been run since diesel was $4.00 a gal. I would like to use it about 50 hours. It uses about 8 gal per hr.

    Look for prices to go up. OPEC signed a deal to cut crude oil production which will eventually raise pump prices of gas
     
  7. $1.66 yesterday

    Hopefully the OPEC deal will stimulate an increase in domestic per bbl cost, but I am afraid its too late. The oil patch is in a bad, bad way, and its gonna be tough to recover.

    Paid 2-3 X what some States are seeing; $2.82 for regular today at a generic station. Probably around .15 a gallon cheaper at Costco, but not worth the round trip drive and wait in line to save $1.50 in topping off the daily. I only gas up there if I'm already there to shop.

    The high dollar brands such as Shell, Chevron are all over $3.00 (seen as high as $3.29 this week).

    CA was hit with a large gas tax increase that was slated to widen and improve the roads. Once that was voted in, the governor signed an executive order that allows him to redirect 'transportation funds' to 'climate change programs'. Classic bait and switch. So sick of it.

    I fully expect the State will eventually hit us up again with a gas or sales tax increase to cover the State's costs to mitigate Covid 19...

    Premium is like $2.80 in Az. Thought that was a pretty good deal so I drove the crap out of the roadster to get rid of the high dollar gas that was in there. Then filled up with the lower priced stuff. You know just trying to take advantage of these gas prices.

    Less than $1 here in SW Wisconsin at most places. What’s more exciting to me is I just filled up my Duramax for $1.99 per gallon. I was waiting for it to drop below $2
