If you do the math, you will find it is less expensive to travel in Canada. Food will be cheaper with a 20 % discount on everything at the check out.

FYI We have not used Imperial Gallons since 1975. We joined the rest of the civilized world with Metric System... now where did i put my .710 Decilitre of Diet Coke....right over there beside the metre stick.

I pass by an new Esso station everyday on my way to work and see the diesel price is at least 10 cents cheaper than gasoline. All though folks with the VW TDIs must be lovin' it too.

I would agree! My Daughter wishes she bought a TDI, has 100,000 km on her 2013 Jetta already. Only ignition coil problems, when she was in the BC mountains a VW dealer gave her a spare just in case it failed again, was on number 3 at that point.

It's a tax issue and its regional.I live in greater Vancouver BC and we have the distinction of the highest gas prices in North America. I buy all of my gas in the US ( live 7 minutes from the Blaine WA border crossing) and even with a 31% exchange rate I can save 25-30% on my gas costs. The point to the original post is that currently diesel is cheaper than any grade of gas. This is a new phenomenon in the past year. For years it has been the other way around.

B&B I just got diesel while I was in Tn about a hour west of Knoxvile and paid $1.94@ gallon, filled the truck and used less then a half a tank to get home to Delaware towing the 5th wheel. Still have plenty of fuel for the next camping trip and won't need to get fuel until the Mayberry rally

Texas Diesel

Here in Texas we can get diesel about $.45/ liter ($1.68/gal. tax included). That still leaves a lot of profit to the producers since a barrel of oil is 42 gallons and is running around $45/barrel. That means the crude oil cost the producer a little over $1.00/ gal ($0.28/ liter Canadian). Your price reflects a 200% cost in taxes, refining, transportation and profit. I don't think the producers are losing money but I am glade to see the prices coming down.

Diesel $1.72 a gallon at the 7-11 in Allen, TX. If you go over to the Kroger nearby where they match that 7-11, you can use your Grocery points (10 cents off for every $100 groceries or 3 cents off if you just sign up for their reward card. I filled up my 36gal diesel this morning for $1.52 a gallon.

Diesel rules (and it's 11mpg while towing ;-) )
