About cdn$1.30/l at the nearby gas station. Marinas are shut down here in Toronto.

That's USD$3.70/gal

That's about a buck cheaper than gas stations here in Michigan.

Jeff, where are you seeing $1.30/l for diesel? $1.78/l is the best Iíve seen north of Toronto.

Really?

OMG, you're right. I was watching it for a while at around $2.30/l.

Sorry for my mistake. I recently came back from a long trip in the US and still get confused about conversions.

When I arrived here Nov 1 I was running on empty. Fuel at the local marina was $2.75/l.

That was just too much for me. I tied up for the winter, installed a bigger service and am running electric for the winter rather than diesel. Think it was the right call.

Ha, I guess we could only hope
Our last fill up was in Spanish last fall in the North Channel and I was thrilled to pay $1.98/l for diesel. Sure hopes it drops a bit this summer, planning to do the loop again!

Yep, me too. Though I use less fuel than most. I know my spring fill up will hurt, just hoping it hurts less

Well, here in Maryland the greed has reached new heights. On-road diesel at 4.49, but home heating oil (with 36 cents tax off it) is being sold at 4.66!!!
A fecal pox on them. I take a drum to the Royal Farms & pump it in. I hope the dollar a gallon they're making goes to their oncologist.

You might want to post your location, and where that price is to be found. "North" as your location doesn't tell people much. Or am I missing something?

Here is the prices (including tax and also over 100 gallons) that I'm seeing in the PNW.

Anacortes : $5.03
Oak Harbor : Closed ???
Des Moines : $4.19

Hopefully the price will drop some up here.

Tuesday's price at Atlantic Yacht Basin in Chesapeake Virginia was $4.20, tax included. $4.15 for 200+ gallons.

Port Consolidated in Fernandina Beach Florida was $4.48 on Tuesday.

That tax is no longer significant. When you compare the cost of building and maintaining a fuel dock versus a car or truck fueling station, the volume of fuel pumped at most marinas versus gas stations or truck stops, and the labor costs of a marine fuel dock versus a multi island self service gas station or truck stop, the tax becomes irrelevant. Think about the capital investment cost of fuel (at current prices) sitting for weeks or months in a marina as compared to the gas station or truck stop that's turning their investment over every week and for some, every day. Then there are the volume discounts. How many marinas are committing to millions of gallons per year for volume discounts? Four years ago when diesel bottomed out around $1.50 per gallon, 30 cent road tax was significant. At $4 to $6 per gallon, not so much.

$2.06.9 /l in Vancouver the last time I filled my diesel car. For some reason the marine fuel in the Vancouver area is the same as at the pumps.

Iím thinking of a trip south of the line to get fuel in Bellingham or Oak Harbour. The last time I filled at OH, it was the cheapest fuel in the north sound.

I understand you can call up a fuel truck in Bellingham to get fuel delivered. Does anyone have any information on that opportunity?
