I'm sure many of you have noticed the falling gas and diesel prices these past three months. When we are rolling our wheels the cost of diesel is very important to us. The lowest retail price we have paid for diesel in almost 3 years was in El Paso, TX the first month we were on the road back in February of 2012 at $3.59. When I went to gas up the VW the other day I noted that the diesel price had fallen to $3.56 at the local Maverick station, and I have seen it as low as $3.49 at a Sinclair just down McCarran Blvd. south of I-80. With a barrel of oil closing at just over $66/barrel today I would expect that within the next few weeks we may see diesel at under $3.00/gallon! A drop of $1.00/gallon saves us $180 when we fill up our 180 gallon tank.....that is significant!
The weather continues to be much warmer these past few days.....when we got off work at 4:30 am it was 54 degrees........quite the contrast to a week ago when it was just 26 degrees at the same time.'
Thanks for stopping by!
