Neat source on Retail Marine Diesel Fuel Prices

Was reading a thread over on The Oil Drum and came across the following comment:

"The item about the Japanese Fishing Industry cites its price for fuel at $3.95/gallon, which implies almost pure crude. Marine diesel here in Oregon is about $4.40, depending on location. Alaska has about 20% of its commercial fleet rumored to be on the beach at any one time due to high diesel costs. Current Alaska prices vary by location--4.04 at Ketchikan to 5.80 at Dillingham shown here from this parent. Further West Coast data is available at the parent."

From there, check these out, each scrolls down from 1999 to 2008, more than quadrupled in price during that time, all retail MDO is now above $4.00 a gallon (in overly conservative calculations I was last using $3.75 a gallon):


Got the following reply from the administrator of that site:

The MDO historical retail data, do you know where I can go online to find that kind of data for Hawaii?

"As far as I know no one collects it online for Hawaii."
