I find biodiesel blends in my area.

But the price is severely depressed. Regular diesel in San Diego currently averages about 2.70 USD. B20 goes for 1.99. My old 2005 Cummins is happy with it.

Also, the small Waste Vegetable Oil contracts are getting dumped as the WVO crowd is leaving the scene as their old Mercedes are dying off. I am getting a call every week it seems to take some small restaurants oil. I already have contracts that provide volumes of oil I can barely use. These small restaurants are caught in a hard place as many larger recyclers will not pick up sub 50 gallon loads. The owners don't want to drive to the recycler to drop off the oill and still have to pay for the disposal! We are seeing a lot of dumping around our shop. Gooey wet spots along the sandy access road. The authorities are thinking of putting up cameras. Really, all they need to do is have a free disposal site.
