    Wow I seen deisel for 1.89 today. I have been thinking about buying a dodge cummins.
    I have said it for the last 2 yrs our economy sucks because of fuel prices. Get fuel back to the .99 mark and keep it that way and things will turn around. :)

    That's normal, the price of diesel tends to lag about 3-4-6 months behind the
    price of gasoline, and it's just a tendency but it helps to remember this the
    next time one thinks the price of diesel is high or low.

    Careful it's not always like that, some times it is low but other times the price of diesel is a lot higher than gasoline,
    it really does kind of add out to little if any benefit in the long run.

    filled up at $1.94 today, to a total of just shy of 47 bucks, much better than the $110 it took to fill up last july/august.
