Fuel prices in Oregon?

Hey guys. First of all let me say greetings from the Northern California and Nevada Chapters.

I'm heading up your way next week on a camping trip with my 5th wheel. Just wondering what fuel prices are like up there so I can prepare myself for whatever reeming I'm in for when I fill my diesel tank.

I'll start out with a stay at Grants Pass for 2 days, then North to about mid-state, where I will be heading over to the coast (Newport or Florence???). I plan on spending the next few days camping along the coastal areas, on the beach, working our way back down South to the California Border.

Any info on prices in those areas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Tim

on edit: If you all have any camping suggestions for the Oregon Coast, that would be great too. Thanks T

whitetr is starting off with a positive reputation.
On average we are seeing prices from $2.79 a gallon up to $2.99 a gallon. Not sure about on the coast, but in the valley around Eugene and Salem this is what you shuld expect. Enjoy your trip up here.

Tim,

Do you have a spare jump tank in the bed? Last time I went up to oregon none of the station attendents would fill my 70 gallon jump tank. I have no clue why but just a heads up.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised at the fuel prices up in Ya'lls part of the country. Amaizing, how it changes so rapidly when ya cross that invisible line...
Anyway, you guys have a great state! Just wanted to let you know how I felt on this. We really enjoyed the country and pleasant folks, especially along the coast for the country. All of the "folks" we came across in the entire vacation were extrordinary.

Kudos to you all in Oregon.
And Thanks for sharing, Tim
