tracking gas and diesel prices


The current economic environment is causing increases in the price of gasoline for automobile drivers and other consumers, including recreational boaters, according to

"We are seeing vast differences in prices for marine gasoline and diesel engine fuel, as well as slight overall increases that we attribute to the economic environment," said William McKenna IV, of Marine Fuel. "Our database of gasoline prices is showing a seasonal increase, but we are not sure what the effect is on the boating industry yet."

Marine Fuel provides marine gasoline price data and marina information. The site has gasoline price spotters, forums and chat rooms where members discuss marine fuel prices and new ways to save on fuel consumption.

"As more information becomes available for boaters, we expect prices for marine fuel to become more symmetric as Web sites like ours continue to give boaters information on how to save money on fuel, find boating facilities and employ green boating solutions that can help with the environment," said McKenna.

Based in Stuart, Fla., Marine Fuel provides free and paid Web site services. Marine Fuel maintains contracts with marinas, marine fuel suppliers, maritime eco-friendly bioproducts manufacturers, affiliates and service suppliers.
