    Hi All:

    Stopped at a Shell on Palomar Airport Rd. and El Camino Real in Carlsbad, California to top off the 15 Golf SportWagen TDI before the steady states last night.

    Absolutely shocked at how crazy fuel prices are out here in Southern California. Saw an Arco station at $3.89 and a 7/11 no name brand across the street at $3.39.

    Pulled into this Shell with Regular Unleaded at $3.299 per while Diesel was just $2.699. That is the least expensive diesel I have filled in probably 6 or 7 years!

    It pays to be driving TDI Clean Diesels out here in California.

    At least you didn't need fuel in Needles. My trip along I40 a couple weeks ago found gas there at $4.09. Gasbuddy shows it unchanged today.

    Fortunately, I didn't need fuel before Kingman AZ, at barely half the price. Nearly the same price was available off-Interstate, less than two miles from Needles but across the border.

    Hi Fuzzy:

    Needles is a bastard place to refuel because of its prices. :(

    By me there is a sixty two cent premium on Diesel. :(

    $3.20 a gallon.
