California-blend diesel in Los Angeles fell 1 cent to a 0.75-cent-premium versus ultra-low-sulfur diesel futures.

Carbob in San Francisco strengthened by 0.5 cent to a premium of 24-cents a gallon. Diesel in San Francisco weakened by 3 cents to 6 cents a gallon more than futures.

Conventional gasoline in Portland, Oregon, strengthened by 0.5 cent to 6 cents a gallon over Nymex futures. Low-sulfur diesel there weakened by 2.5 cents to a premium of 6 cents a gallon.
