    I was out a little while ago and I drove past an EXXON station and the price for 93 High Test was $4.03.9 a gallon and Diesel was selling for $3.95.9. I've never seen a gallon of 93 octane gasoline cheaper than a gallon of Diesel ? :gasp:

    ? Did you get the decimal points in the wrong places or was that the point of the message?

    Ah no, but I thought you'd know that a gallon of 93 octane DOES NOT sell for 4 hundred dollars a gallon, but if you want decimal points, Ok their now in the post.

    My wife says I nitpick too much. I gave her 15 reason why that was not true.

    I thought I once was correct and was STILL mistaken! Lol

    It's sad really. Diesel is a by product of gasoline. Wtf are we doing paying more for the by product than the real deal?! Does the government want diesels off the road that bad? Hell, drop the price of diesel down to $2 gal and war h the economy turn itself around!

    Growing up, and I am not that old, diesel was always cheaper than gas.

    They actually can make several different things IIRC out of the leftover junk made from gasoline. Plus they have to move it somewhere else and to more processing, but that's another subject. I think diesel makes a lot of sense, but not when there's so much tied up in politics around fuel and energy.

    Here in St. Louis the prices are as follows for gas and diesel:

    87 - $3.41
    93 - $3.71
    Diesel - $3.75

    Premium prices crack me up, you ever notice premium is ALWAYS $0.30 higher no matter the price of gas? When gas was $1.75 a gallon, premium was $2.05. It looks to me that $0.30 per gallon higher is all the public is willing to pay. Scam if you ask me.
