There are 2 stations in town that sell off road diesel.  Its home heating oil.  It has the red dye.  At the mill, we had the local oil man fill our tanks each week.  Ran our gen set and all the off road equipment with it.

Overnight, the off road jumped from $5.39 to $5.84.  Diesel is at $6.53, and will probably go up in the next delivery. 
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Stopped at Kroger in Cartersville, GA to fill my F250 with diesel.  Sign showed 4.69.  When I started the pump it showed 3.76.  I put 18 gallons in and was quite happy with the deal.  When I got back to Aiken, SC I filled up at Sam's Club.  Diesel was up to 5.11 here.  Big change in prices in just over 220 miles.

I just saw a news blurb that some of the big fuel stops on the east coast are having a hard time finding diesel right now to keep their tanks from running  dry.  Seems the supply  is dropping  off due to our exporting oil to Europe that recently ramped up. $10.00 a gallon diesel could  become  reality this summer if the supply isn't  stabilized.

Regular $5.49 cash + 10 cents for cards.  Diesel $6.49 :-\  Pretty sure I filled both the SkyTrak and my new Ford tractor tanks last fall before I packed it in.  That saved me about $100.  Now just hope it lasts until the prices drop :D :D :D

Has anyone seen the motor oil prices? They have at least doubled here in the last year. And the shelves are as bare as the baby formula.  $25+ for a gallon of Delo 400

Just had another ten cents price jump in Virginia.  It was under $4 for a week or so, then $4.10, $4.17 and $4.29 in a matter of days.  Diesel running $5.55 now.

Yeah, Rotella is pricing itself out of the market. I think T6 diesel oil is about 45 a gallon now IF you can find it.

I hope hurricane season this year is mild. A good hit in the Gulf will really add to the pain at the pump.

By my quick maths gas is getting close to US$8 a gallon here. 

To be fair it probably hasn't gone up by the same % as the US because a big part of the cost is taxes (which have , and those have been temporarily reduced to reduce the shock on the voters wallets. But it still hurts when you need to fill up  :-\

I'm going to have to get a better job so I can afford to live!!!
Off road diesel was $6.08!!!  :o 
I got just a little over 16 gallons for $100!!!! I've never spent that much at one time.
 I can see why people let the fields go up.
