I've been working at the refinery at Wood River, IL since October, just got laid off yesterday.
They make the gasoline, propane, and lots of other things. Trucks pick it up and then transport it to gas stations all over the midwest.

This is what I don't understand: Propane is higher than hell up there around Wood River. I was staying in my camper and paying $30 for a 30 pound fill. I could drive 5 miles through traffic and get it for $25 but decided it wasn't worth the hassle. I can get a 30 pound fill here at home (130 miles away) for $19.
On to gasoline, I paid $1.99 last night up there because I was on 1/8 of a tank before I left for home.
I get to my home town and gas is $1.85.

Why do prices range from 2.01 to 2.49 for diesel in same city is a good question too.

Tommy, In this part of PA the gas stations are paying us 3 cents a gallon to use their gas.
