    Diesel here is $3.74 & climbing. We're going south to Arizona next week.
    Weather depending, we'll either hop thru E. Oregon to Nevada & out to Salt
    Lake & down thru Las Vegas or down I-5 thru Oregon & California, cutting
    over the hill at Bakersfield. How's the fuel prices?:confused:

    I thought they were bad, but compared to 3.74, Im feeling pretty good. 259 for unlead and about 3.00 for diesel. Of course I have diesel. Thats Phoenix pricing. Further you are from the big city, its a bit more. Flagstaff is about 320 for diesel Ive heard from a friend.

    hmmm...time to do some conversions... 96.9/litre... about $3.90 CDN for a US gallon... so...... call it $4.10 USD/US gallon for Diesel...

    we're holding at $3.25/gal :-( i don't mind high fuel prices as long as diesel is cheaper than gas (like it's been the majority of my life, just doesn't make sense)

    Last I saw it was somewhere around $3.55 - $3.65 here, and is considerably more expensive than any of the unleaded gases.

    And darnit I need to fill up too :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    When did Toyota put a diesel engine in the Prius? Aren't you always preaching conservation to us?:cool2:
