Default F'n diesel...$4.09/gal

I saw $4.09/gal. in Standale (west of Grand Rapids) today. Bastards. It's making me more stoked about going with a WVO derivitive, though.

I have owned my diesel for 6 months, havent even put 5000 miles on it and the price of fuel has went up $1.10 since I bought it. That was a good buy

Yep, I just paid $52 for 12.5 gals of diesel ($4.19). I love how people bitch about gas, milk, bread but with the cost of diesel. Everything will go up because everything has ties to diesel.
