Diesel fuel availability in Southern Rural US

I am needing to upgrade to a larger 250/350 style truck, but there is a lot of discussion in Canada about a lack of diesel fuel in the rural areas of southern US, once you get off the interstate or major highways. Was this only a problem in the past, or is it still a problem now. With a 14k 5ver my non-diesel options are limited

Rural Southern US? That's me.

Farmers live here.

Diesel is everywhere. I have one, live here, and have zero problems. None.

Never had a problem when I drive off the interstate onto the state/local roads in the south when I used to pull with my diesel.

However I always had (2) 5 gallon of diesel in those yellow containers to make sure I could go another 50-100 miles if needed. They could also be used to transfer from the pump to the truck if i could't easily fit at the station as well... figured 20 minutes of refilling them was better than being stuck and waiting on someone.

Thanks. The people were concerned to such an extent that they were limiting their choices to gas only motor homes. Sometime you have to go to the source to find out the real storey. Thanks again

Diesel everywhere

I'm in Florida and diesel is everywhere. I live 15 miles from the interstate &
there is diesel at just about every gas station. And it is cheaper off the interstate by 20-45 cents per gallon. The price of gasoline has been falling for about two weeks now. I'm in Jacksonville, FL and I see gas for $1.94 per gal with diesel slowly falling to $2.15 per us Gal. There are places where diesel is cheaper than gas.

In my area of S/E TN if you find a gas station that gas station generally has diesel. There maybe a few smaller stations, few and far between, that may not have it. So if one doesn't the next one will.
