Diesel fuel

Gas prices seem to be dropping here locally every day. Reg is down to $2.46...

When did you ever think that $2.46 was a good deal? :)

Anyway, our bus, just like yours, runs on diesel. What are some of the prices near you on that? Here in central Florida it's $2.99 and not dropping as fast if any at all!

Diesel prices are still sky high compared to gasoline!  I just filled my TDI tonight for $2.84 and gasoline was $2.33 or a 51 cent difference!  I don't know if I paid 51 cents more even during October last year.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
