The high price might explain why some folks try to put cheaper GAS in their DIESEL truck.  :D

I just topped off my truck Friday. The pump price was 3.159 but a local grocery store give you cents off, with each $50 you buy at that grocery store. I had $1.03/gal off, thus I paid $2.129, that's only about double what is should be.
Back in the 80's I had an International 28,000# GVW with a 9 liter diesel. With it I got 14 MPG seemingly regardless of the load on it. Back then I paid $.999/gal for on road diesel.
logging small time for years but just learning how,  2012 36 HP Mahindra tractor, 3point log arch, 8000# class excavator, lifts 2500# and sets logs on mill precisely where needed,  Peterson ATS upgraded to WPF mill, maple syrup a hobby that consumes my time. looking to learn blacksmithing.

Hey @reedco I have stayed at the city park in Douglas many times.  Even caught a few Rainbows out of the N. Platte River and took an Antelope or two at Bill.  Even ate a few Prime Ribs at Clementines.  ;D

       Born in Douglas  Went to country school at Bill for 8 years. Worked the oilfields a big part of my life. Allways did better when fuel was higher so I am on the other side of this discussion. But 100.00 crude is to much. also makes things really crazy.  traffic, rent etc.

And with are refinery blowing up & burned for a day,it won't lower the price I'm sure. Even though it was asphalt that burned. Or that's what they said was burning. My Niece & Nephew were both working there at the time,so maybe they'll know,The Rest Of Story
