February 22, 2013 | Weekly Fuel Market Update
Retail prices on gasoline have risen by 45 cents per gallon since the start of the year. The increase happened earlier in the year than normal. Scheduled maintenance shutdowns at refineries, along with rising crude oil prices, are contributing to the early increases.
Order sooner than later this week and line up your loads in advance as much as possible as product continues to tighten in New Mexico due to local refinery shutdowns. Desert Fuels is positioned well with plenty of fuel to meet your needs even in this tight market.
West Texas / El Paso
El Paso remains very tight on product with suppliers trying to take care of contract customers. Expect it to be even tighter on supply this week in West Texas. Order sooner than later. Desert Fuels is impressing customers in the area with great prices and available fuel in spite of this extremely tight market.
With prices recently trending higher for consecutive weeks, order sooner than later this week. Desert Fuels continues to supply Tucson wholesale diesel with the most competitive prices in Tucson and Phoenix.
Colorado – Front Range
No significant updates this week.
