Getting RAPED!!!!

Wow! $3.96 for #2 diesel so much for biodeisel. You buy a diesel so you can pull heavy stuff and generally better mileage, but now it is not worth having one and the other problem is nobody wants to buy it off of you unless you want to take a kick in the shorts.

IMO the fuel industry has drove the market right in the toilet, dealers can't even sell new ones. Keep it up You greedy F@*&ers!

we don't get a break because we drive real vehicles and not gay ones! LOL Diesel is a byproduct of gas right? There is nothing gay about wanting to get better fuel mileage its just the hole concept of it all.

I agree,however the weekend dollar sure has played a huge roll in the whole situation.

On a side note Dealers are discounting the 08' models like 12k now.Talk about a kick in the shorts to the guys who paid full pop for em last sept.I saw a 2008 for 36999,crew cab diesel fx4.Nows the time to buy one,but not the time to sell em.Can you say resale value? I am holdin on to mine for now,just gonna buy a cheap beater in the meantime.
