Low sulfur costs

The cost to remove all of that sulfur from diesel is high due to the extra amount of hydrogen (not free) and the very expensive catalyst that is used in the process. Large compressors to pump the hydrogen, large high pressure reactors and large furnaces to heat the products to reaction temperatures are all part of the increased cost of the low sulfur diesel. Speaking from 39 years of refining experience.

Here in NE Colorado our diesel and reg. unleaded has been high. There are 3 fuel stations in our town and they are more or less waiting to see what the other one does. When one goes down one beats its price by a penny. Diesel is another story. Right now diesel is 2.379 and reg. unleaded is 2.339.
I don't buy in our community unless I have to so I can get to Ft. Morgan, CO where diesel and gas are about 30 to 40 cents cheaper per gal. It has always been this way in our small community of Yuma, CO. I haven't bought fuel or gas in our community for the last 3-5 years. Always try to fill up before going back home.

Here in Gaylord, MI diesel is 2.14 and 87 octane gas is 2.31. That was yesterday. I haven't been out today. Go figure.

Gas vs. Diesel

Here in North Georgia, the price difference between gas and diesel is about 10 - 15 cents a gallon. I bought diesel for 2.16 at a local Kroger on Monday (8-8-16). Along the interstate at the truck stops the difference is even more about 25 cents a gallon.

Truck stops must charge more to get any kind of a return on their investment . A handi-way on a side road might buy his real estate for less than one hundred thousand dollars while a large lot at an Interstate will cost many , many millions . A Flying J just paid 400 million for real estate on I-95 in So. Fl.
I ain't defending them , but I can see that they must get a return on investment to stay in business . I buy mine at mom and pops place !
