You should report on the Diesel prices also as they are now $6.29 in A Town used to be Diesel was always lower than gas but has reversed itself. Most delivery trucks use Diesel so now your cost of everything goes up. They pushed for the use of Diesel years ago and got people hooked then lowered the hammer and they are going to do the same with solar and EV’S down the road.Oh by the way I see PG&E has put in for another rate hike to cover their monopoly and PUC will give it as usual. Everyone on fixed income will get a adjustment to help keep up I’m sure

Chalk Mountain is actually at 5.03 per gallon. They continue to stay 2 cents ahead of the new Arco station a couple blocks away at 5.05.
