Wonder what diesel is running in Southern California.

I heard LA hit over $7 per gallon for gas. Here in Central Florida we hit $4.

You can find higher prices, but most look for lowest.
Check this out: https://www.gasbuddy.com/station/145596

Then prices at home: https://www.gasbuddy.com/station/120685
1 USG=3.78l
$1Cdn=$.786US, so reg gas is only $5.52 US/gal

Diesel is $9.68/US gallon here in southern Sweden right now -- at the local gas station. And that's with an unusually STRONG dollar right now.

I haven't gone to check a marina pump price here recently -- but they are typically 10-20% higher than local gas station prices. This is all roughly 50% higher than a year ago.

I just saw $5.99/gal for diesel at our local station that is usually competitive. This is in San Diego. Seems prices are all over the place at the moment. Next week will be ugly I suspect.

We spent the weekend in Delaware, before driving home (for the next two weeks!) to Southern PA.

Delaware prices were $3.99/gallon for gasoline (I have a love/hate relationship with my 33 gallon tank) and $4.49/gallon for diesel. Here is southern PA, prices are currently $0.20/gallon higher (PA taxes are 25 cents/gallon higher).

Diesel is still just under $4.00 here, but the higher grade (winter mix) is $4.05. That's a street price, not the marina price. I'll bet our marina gasoline will be $6.00 by May.

Great Scott! Diesel at $9.68/US gallon in southern Sweden. Gulp! Um glad to see you own a hybrid boat. So my take is I'll be running jerry cans to the local gas station several times next fill up. I never thought I'd consider that. Were spoiled brats here is the US for sure

Diesel today at Gulf Harbor in Fort Myers is $4.32 per gallon. New River marina in Sneads Ferry, NC is $4.45 per gallon. Atlantic Yacht Basin in VA Beach is $3.45 per gallon. Seems like a number of places haven't bought fuel since the price increase.

On road diesel is running around $4.60 per gallon here in Fort Myers.

Oil and byproducts are highly fungible and are traded in a global market. Price of stored fuel is connected to spot market, not what the service station paid for the fuel. A big change from 30+ years ago when many service stations were independently owned.

Marine fuel docks operate on cost-plus basis. You can definitely arbitrage price in a rising market.

I just saw $5.99 here in Northern CA for road fuel. I hunted around and found the lowest price of $5.25. It's up $1 in a week. It is hard to say where it will go over the next couple months. I heard a report that XOM is trying to ramp up production in the Permian basin but knowing what's going on in the oil industry most companies are afraid to lease lands to explore due to fear that the government will change the rules and they'll lose any investment they make.

We are sneaking up on AUD $2.00/ltr here (USD5.60/Gal). Slowing down by half a knot is going to save a lot more than waiting for prices to drop.

From the WSJ this morning : "Brent crude futures, the benchmark in international energy markets, rose 9.8% early Monday to $129.69 a barrel after earlier reaching $139.13." `.

But even then, I see many of the fuel docks around here set their prices early in the season and then they stay until winter, regardless of whether prices go up or down. I'm guessing many of them are buying fuel on bulk contracts to keep the price steady.

I'm new here and just saw this. I don't think $5 diesel is crazy, in fact that's probably the lowest we'll see this summer, if that.

It's not necessarily just that prices are crazy, but the rate of price increase over the last couple of weeks is unusually rapid.

True, but isn't that to be expected with a similar rate of increase in the price of oil in the past few weeks?

Absolutely. But rapid increases like this don't happen often, so it throws people's planning off more than just a steady high price would. At this point, I have no idea whether gas for the boat will be $4.79 when we launch or if it'll be $5.99.



Of all the years for me to have a winter project that needed empty fuel tanks (vs our usual procedure of filling before winter storage)...
