A week ago, diesel fuel was $3.40 a gallon when I last filled. Didn't need fuel on Saturday, but as I drove Tucson, I noted the prices for diesel ranged from the lowest at $3.49 to $4.09 at the Chevron stations. Wow.
Thought I could at least begin my summer travels before diesel hit that even numbered plateau. A little unrest in an oil producing country and two days later the price of diesel goes up. I wasn't aware that the diesel pump was directly connected to North Africa. But it must be. What other explanation would there be.
Looks like there will be more walking in my future. Or an alternative might be to forgo a stop at Starbucks and buy a gallon of diesel fuel instead.
