Wow- is diesel really 1$ more per gallon along I-95?

I am getting ready to take a trip and am considering renting an SUV. It would cost me $500, but I would save $200 in gas/fuel prices. Is it that ugly now for diesel price? Thanks.

Try the Gas Buddy Trip Cost Calculator for estimate:

It will provide diesel prices anywhere in the Country.

You can hand enter vehicle info like mpg and tank capacity.

Diesel prices used to be cheaper than gas here in Ca. but for a year now gas has dropped in price and diesel hasn't moved. Still $3,67 From what i have found out on the web diesel is high all over the country.

I think we are exporting much diesel now which is keeping the supply lower in US and keeping price higher.

Must be a regional thing. Around here, diesel is either lower than gas or within a few cents if higher.
I'm planning a road trip down to America in the spring, and I'll probably take it in the shorts on diesel prices.

Well, I may rent a car. It will cost me $110 more, once you factor in fuel/gas prices, to run a rental car from NY to FL and back to NY. $110 to not have to worry is the upside, downside is that kids don't like trading down to a full size car. Car claims to get 36mpg, so I figure 32, and truck gets 18.5 or so. I can't believe it is a $1.89 vs $2.99 for gas and diesel. It was less than gas when I bought the truck. Oh well.

You will also save on tire wear, oil change, etc.

But I refuse to drive through TN in anything smaller than a full size truck.

Everybody in that State drives like they have a number on the side of their door and are racing NASCAR.

I don’t know why AK gasoline prices are so high since there are in state refineries but diesel is not very high and it has to be barged up since there are no diesel refineries.

Actually, most of our gasoline is barged up. The only operating refinery is in Kenai now, since the one at North Pole shut down.

True, the Tesoro Nikiski refinery is the only one producing gasoline since Flint Hills closed down in 2014 and the small Petro Star refineries in North Pole and Valdez mostly produce aviation fuels, but I think Tesoro still holds enough of the Alaska gasoline market to set price quite high with minimal competition from Outside. I do recall in the higher demand summer months, some gasoline has even been shipped from refineries in South Korea.

There is also a small refinery in Prudhoe for gasoline but its used exclusively for BP & Conoco fleets and the village of Nuiqsut.
