Gasoline pricing can get pretty strange. Californians have generally had to be used to the fact that they have more expensive fuel than most places, for various reasons including having a special clean-air blend just for California and carbon taxes on top of ordinary fuel excise taxes. However, something strange is going on right now, at least at Lodi Jct., where the price of fuel continues to be ten cents per gallon less than the price in Fernley, at the same truck stop chains (Loves, Flying J/Pilot). Fernley is typically one of the least-expensive places for fuel on I-80 in Nevada, but Lodi Jct. has them beat. I do not know why.
During my fuel stop at the Flying J, I stopped and had an early dinner at Denny's. I have to go have a fasting blood draw tomorrow morning (my semi-annual diabetes check is this Friday; this is the lab draw for it), so it's nothing but water until I get over to the clinic in Mountain View to let the phlebotomist have at me as early as I can tomorrow morning.
