Huh, just checked gas buddy and the spread on diesel between stations is $1.50 vs the spread on regular gas at $0.50. At the station with the best price on diesel it's $4.49 vs $3.39 for regular.

As far as heating oil is concerned, in 2020 residential use was about 3B gallons, about 1/4th of what it was in the late 70s and a much smaller percentage of the total distillate useage, though it's still a concern in the NE and NY in particular as refineries have to tune for it during the leadup and during the winter months.

Yep, in Connecticut the price of diesel has been well over $1 more than gasoline for awhile now.

I just posted in another thread talking about 1/2 ton diesels... no one I know is looking to buy a diesel now, the fuel is so expensive.

What? 38 gallons?

We used to go through @ 500+ gallons every winter and that was on the Eastern shore of MD, where winters are typically really mild.
