    We took delivery of 287 gallons of (ULS) diesel fuel yesterday, it ran $712.00 that's terminal cost! I noticed in my travels diesel from $2.87 to $2.99 at exxon/mobil. I guess they are about to slam us again!:realmad: :realmad: :realmad: :realmad:

    Of course the oil companies ride on our backs. It gets cold so demand goes up and the prices follow.

    Oil heat @ home
    F550 diesel
    F250 diesel
    50hp Kubota
    21hp Kubota

    they couldn't use the "hurricane's-a-coming" excuse this summer to raise prices, so now they're jumping early into the "home heating oil" excuse. We're still around $2.69-2.77

    actually the opec countries wernt happy with the price of oil dropping to near 50 dollars a barrel again, so they cut production by 100mil barrels a day, just to drive their profits back up. its only a matter of time before gas ect goes back up.

    so demand relative to the available suppy has increased........then the price goes up.........really

    basic economics.......

    It's their oil they can do what they want with it....... If the environmentalists would let us drill we would not be so affected by this.......
