Here in San Diego it's way cheaper than gas at the moment. I'll take a pic in the next day or two.

In New England diesel is always premium gas priced or more.
Fwiw I used gas buddy app to save a buck or more every fill up.

It is ridiculous how there is no rhyme or reason to the way they decide what to charge for fuel. It should be nationally regulated. This was taken in SF in the Marina district where it is mostly wealthy young people but on the other side of the city where it is more industrial it is 15 cents cheaper. It is complete BS

There is complete rhyme and reason to the pricing. You may not like the answers, but supply, demand, geopolitical risk,regulation and taxes all play their part. If you want price controls on fuel, then go live in Venezuela.

At the local level what drives fuel prices if I remember correctly from an article I read a few years ago is the frequency of commuter drivers, the tax bracket said drivers are in that drive by said fueling point (fuel station), and distance from fuel distribution points. Something to that effect.

Most places in Virginia I have seen Diesel cost more than Regular but less than Premium. Today it is about 10 cents cheaper than Premium.

The price you are showing is very nasty. If you have an Android phone, you can download gasbuddy. Maybe that station is fleecing people due to supply/demand.

This is what happens in a market that regulates itself ... I could just imagine the BS if the government proposed intervening in this process.

You as the consumer have freedom of choice where to buy gas ...

If you want market regulation for gas ... would you also support market regulation of healthcare ... gun control ...

There's definitely a degree of fleecing for boats, but I think they also have to spend a ton on insurance and other things in order to sell gas to boats on the water. A bunch of the smaller places up in Alexandria Bay closed in the past few years because they simply couldn't afford to stay in business any longer.

upsate NY/north NJ it is more expensive than premium. If you know where to shop you can get it for about 3.95 a gallon.

The closest station near my place is 4.35 gallon for diesel on credit
