Nort, we are paying 1.68 for Diesel here and it is 1.35 in IN and OH. At least you are not getting single digit gas mileage from a V-10. I have a 586 mile tow ahead of me. 9 hours of controling almost 20,000lbs is a major deal. I have to start my endurance training next week.

What's with the diesel being more than gas ??? Here in Chicago diesel is 1.90 and 87 octane is 2.06.

This madness has got to stop soon
