Finally! I am the lucky one.  :D
I bought a tank Tuesday at $3.65 a gallon.
The high place here in town is $3.99 a gallon.
I guess New Mexico added some taxes on the off road, it's only about .13 a gallon cheaper than on road. It's not worth the paperwork they want to use it.

PA just added more taxes to our fuel, but they claim its not a tax, its a user surcharge, same darn thing with a different label. On road in running 4.45 - 4.50, off road was down around 3.85-3.90 but today when I stopped it was up to 4.06. Thankfully I am close to home, and with it warming up a bit I shut the machine down and cut. I pulled 5 load last week on 30 gallons of fuel, so no complaints. That will change as things break up, working in the mud seems to really push the machine. That 16 inches of snow we had on the ground packed down to a good 5-6 inches of slick icy stuff on my trails and the wood slides like butter.
It ain't easy...

Filled the tank with offroad diesel yesterday for 3.49 a gallon. Road fuel was 4.07 I think.

you probably cheating and buying on the reservation  ;D  I know I do when we work up that way

Nope that is the price here in Ontonagon. I'm sure The Pines on the res is cheaper yet.

Well, since we aren't building more capacity, this is the price for "not in my back yard". Plus the tax man with his hand in the wallet. I think their are still hidden taxes in those off road prices. Every step to deliver it to the tanks has a value added tax: refining, wholesale margin, retail margin... before you even get to delivery. Seems to me on the farm there was only 3 - 5 cents difference. :-\

You take this week's benchmark price for low sulfur diesel, it's $0.976/10/litre, by the time I pump it into my tank from the gas station pump it's $1.54/litre and I'm near a refinery, 3 hrs away in St John.

When the latest premier got elected he said no new tax hike on earnings, but he got more through a 2.5 cent a litre fuel tax hike. We got scammed big time. ::) A 2 cent HST hike is cheaper in my math. And this year he's getting that income tax hike he put off. The poorest province, pays the most tax. Doesn't that mean we need to downsize the government, too many services, not enough money. Either that or civil service pensions are too high. That's been another battle.
Move'n on.

On road diesel runs about $1.52/litre ($5.75/us gal) right now.  Off road is usually about 20+ cents cheaper/litre but the paperwork to get a permit is a pain.  I burn approximately 1500 litres a week cutting wood so the permit is necessary.

We are getting ripped off.Saw a bit that said a Canadian oil co is producing 300000 barrels a day and selling at 70 bucks a barrel .They are pushing for a pipeline that would get a 100 bucks a barrel selling to Asia.This high priced fuel will destroy our economy.Banks are robbing savings depositors by paying 1 tenth of 1 percent interest.Look at all the new banks being built.How long can this go on?

Low interest rates to borrow money is a fraud statement. The borrowing is on credit cards at 20-30%. I think the 18% to borrow back in the 80's is far better, don't you? I can remember borrowing $3000 was a big deal, they usually wouldn't do it. But racking it up on a credit card was fine. More fraudulent methods to serve greed. May not be fraud, but anyone can see the wizard behind the curtain on that deal. ;)

As consumers of the $70 oil, we don't see it because the government sets prices up here based on NY harbour price, which is that $100 world price.
Move'n on.

 And thats the truth. Ive been in the oil industry since I got out of high school. 75% of fuel used in Boston and north comes from Everett refinery in Canada. Theres so much crude work in the gulf right now they cant build boats fast enough. Licensed captains mates engineers with experience are getting 8-1200 A DAY...  im on my 3rd run of gas in a week, feeding the I-95 monster.

Off road 3.54 On road 3.79-3.89. Only thing I say when I fill everything up is "I'm glad I got the money to fill it up" Cause if I didn't it would mean I wasn't working. There really isn't any reason for it to be that high though.
