how much diesel fuel?

Hi, as I sit here looking at the birds at my feeder, I started to wonder what the cost of diesel fuel is around your neck of the woods? right now its $1.24 a liter Im in ontario, and our gas is also $1.24 per lt. I heard that diesel is more the gas in the USA? Im getting ichy to get back to work on the bus, but there just so much snow, and its been -33 to -38 for the past 3 weeks, then we get hit with snow!!! I WANT OUT OF HERE!!

o well , just getting cabin fever, I feel better after I snow blow the drive way AGAIN

tks

Diesel is about $3.49/g in my area. I saw $3.89/g in S.F. a couple of weeks ago.

I buy fuel every other day all over the US. Prices for tax exempt semi run fro $3.16 to $3.40 for the last few months. Arizona is I think cheaper for non commercial. Go figure.

Re: how much diesel fuel?

$3.28 last night at Isleta Pueblo (both gas stations) on I-25 Exit 215 just S of Albuquerque. But here in Socorro, it's higher, except at the Valero (cheapest place is Roberts but not good place to get fuel or so we have been told).

Blue Ridge, Blairsville, Hiawassee & Ellijay always have higher gas prices. That's why I either refueled in Dalton or in Clayton or Rabun Gap!
