    Another excuse for raising gas/fuel prices coming. Citgo is not cheaper for diesel. It is $3.38 at a litle rundown place east side of Sanford....just down the street BP was $3.08....saving cents makes sense !

    part of me wants to go over there with my Jetta and scoop up the spill in cups and put it in my tank. Diesel is about 3.13/gallon in RTP (or it was at the Citgo which is usually cheapest).
