Default Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/oil_prices

Diesel $4.69 a gallon over here and probably going up.

.80 cheaper in Hilo (100 miles away). Guess where I fill.

Wingnut, You ready for increased business???

Regular gas here is a dollar more a gallon than what you paid for diesel.

Here's the proof: http://www.motortrend.com/gas_prices...ona/index.html

Diesel in the Tampa area is no less than $3.19/gallon currently. I don't think it's going below that any time soon.....but who cares?

You have a state income tax, though.
None here in FL, or TX.

Im far from an accountant, so I dunno which way works out better for us in the end, but income tax is just so hard for me to stomach.

Sounds like diesel is as expansive in Hawaii, as it is in Cali...

Here in Wisconsin we have a .40 per gal tax PLUS a state income tax and D2 is $3.29 (also it gets cold)
