I have to ask....Here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I just paid $3.34 a gal for diesel, that is .75 cents more than just 6 weeks ago!!!
"Holy Price Hike Batman"!!!!!!
What does that say for the upcoming summer? Do they make a "Hybrid" boat?????

I don't get it...All last year, Diesel was at least .50 cents cheaper than gas....Diesel, from what I understand, is a by-product of gasoline, & that tells my peanunt brain, that Diesel should be cheaper, but yet it sky rockets past gas....Hmmmm......go figure.....

Its a scam. Oil companies have gotten us thinking anything under $3.00 is a good deal and now they are going for $4.00. I hate them all. As for the diesel its the same story, cheaper to make but as long as the truckers need it they will gouge us all.
