3.59 in the big city of Smithville Tx. yesterday, Been that way for a few weeks.  When they really get to ramping up these exports as Cliff says, look out! Thinking about drilling one in my backyard down here in Fayette County. Can you say Eagle Ford! ;D

  With  tax around $4.29 now in IN.  ... Bob 

     Even with tax, that's nuts.  With the Waw*Mott card discount, it's $3.67 for road diesel in eastern NC and NC has some of the highest fuel taxes in the South East US.  I know -- it's because the petroleum companies and Waw*Mott have decided that they're going to be good to us and lose money on every gallon we buy!  Yeah, right ... Or maybe they're just ripping you off in IN.

Guys you should hope diesel stays about the current price level it drops a lot in price the taxes will go up in hurry from the US government ,states,counties and any other taxing agencies around then when the prices increase you are going to be paying big bucks they are setting around like vultures on fence post ready to sweep down  JMO

 In case one has not noticed the price of fuel is down  fuel prices were blamed for the increase in food and among other things the price of fuel is down are our costs up or down on everyday essentials like food,clothing and other items just asking

IMO
When price of fuel goes up. The price of everything goes up fast. When the price of fuel geos down. The price of everything either stays up or comes down very slowly. Wondering why?
