It was just a couple of weeks ago that the price of fuel in California got to $6.00, because there was a power outage and a fire. Then the fuel volumes came out and who would have thought there was no shortage, so much for supply and demand, it is more like greed and coercion.

Gas reg. $3.24 while diesel came down a penny to $3.78pg. The discrepancy widens every freakin' day.
Seems best diesel prices are at the 2 new QT stations on 178 at I-85 and on Pearman Dairy Rd at the Whitehall Rd intersection.

I'm sorry for you Rand, you've worked so hard to learn so many things so badly.

it's a grocery store in Denver and for every $100 bucks you spend they give you .10 cents off a gallon. My girls mom shops at Safeway but in her town they don't have a gas station so they let us use their discount

I don't know if this will work but here is a link to a pic of the receipt https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater
