$4.199 today in San Diego at Shell

Regular unleaded was $4.299!

This is the first time since about September, 2010 that I've seen diesel cheaper than regular unleaded here.

Yeah, smells kinda like burnt fish.

So, my car did the burn yesterday evening.
Drove to work (20 miles) but then today on the way home the SES light came on (2700 miles).
