Local diesel prices today in Grass Valley, CA are $2.89. Gas is as low as $2.13 for regular. However, I drove my 1995 Olds Cutlass Ceria wagon down to Carlsbad (San Diego) & back last weekend to attend an antique radio swap meet. The Olds averaged 24 MPG except that from the top of the Grapevine where I tanked up for $2.17 at the Flying J truck stop, to Carlsbad it got 28 MPG. Gas at the Costco in Carlsbad was $2.31, highest price on the trip. On Wed. 11/12, on the trip down, I filled up at the Flying J truck stop in Lodi, CA for $2.13 but on the return  the price on Sun. 11/16, had dropped to $1.83 a gallon! I never thought I would ever see gas under $2 again. Diesel, at the Flying J truck stop stations was $2.68, as I recall, but did not make notes so am not sure.
