87.9 a liter here for gas, and 76.9 for diesel. If the arithmetic in my head is correct, you could buy eight liters of diesel for the price of seven liters of gas. Expressed another way, diesel is over 12% cheaper than gas.

I use "cheaper" loosely, since that 76.9 works out to about $2.89 Canadian for a US gallon, or US $3.39 for the same US gallon -- 56% higher than today's price in Toledo.

Now I know where the expression "We're getting hosed" comes from...
In reverent quest of the last mpg...
