Fuel prices: I-71 Sunoco Biodiesel and E85

Posted By on February 28, 2007

Renewable fuels price update 02/28/2007
Fuel prices have jumped this past week and a comment over at CinciTDI has me wondering if this is a short term trend or if it will continue into spring and summer. Psychologically, I’m finding my own personal limits are being challenged again, although I’ve come to accepted $2.50 for ULSD or biodiesel. (maybe it just the 20 or 30 cent swings?) Today I paid $2.69 for B-20 … Grr! I suspect most middle American’s have about a $3.00/gallon trigger point — what is yours and where do you see fuel prices going from here?

    I’ve got my fingers crossed that once spring approaches and the demand for home heating oil goes down in the northeast, the price of diesel (even ULSD) might come down below $2.40. Prices seemed to subside when we were having such a warm January, but then we had this recent cold snap and prices bumped up. Perhaps it was just a coincidence.

    My diesel fillup on 2/23 was $2.58/gallon. Just a New Hampshire reference point… It’s higher in Massachusetts (tends to be a rule of thumb anyways…) where new TDI’s are illegal anyways. :-)

    I’ll simply have to grin and bear it. My driving will be reduced some by whatever prices it goes to, but not much. I’ll pay whatever they charge.

    And, yes, they are a little bit high for B20. But, the only other choice in the area is McWherter’s, and they tend to charge more, and they’re much further for me.

    Saudi oil production has declined since 2005 and some are saying this summer we’ll know if the decline is voluntary. I noticed Blair B is pushing coal. I guess he’s a socialist– socializing the costs of pollution. But perhaps he’s starting to see oil isn’t forever..

    Hey John … I paid $2.94 this past week in Florida for unleaded regular gasoline. We’re almost to $3.00/gallon and its not even summer. Maybe I should change my vote as I didn’t think it would go this high this soon?

    Looks like most of us were wrong. It’s only May 15th and unleaded regular gasoline throughout the state of Ohio is regularly advertised at $3.29. Wow … I didn’t expect it to go quite that high that fast. (and this is after Mother’s Day weekend … shouldn’t it come down?
