Diesel fuel costs - start complaining, please!

I just went on-line and sent an email to my Governor in Florida concerning diesel fuel prices. I think this is at least a place to start. Here is what my email stated "

Sir:

Please tell me why diesel fuel prices are $.70 to $1.00 per gallon higher than 87 octane and much higher than 93 octane gas. Diesel fuel is about 54 octane and should be much cheaper to produce. I own a diesel truck. One year ago when I purchased my diesel truck the price of diesel fuel was about $.15 per gallon cheaper than 87 octane gas. What is going on and is there anyone in government taking a serious look at this problem?"

Fellow diesel truck owners. I think this is the least we all can do. Go on-line and get a email address and at least send an email about our concerns over diesel fuel prices. We have to start somewhere. Anyone else have ideas?

Watched the news tonight and they said the demand over seas is way way up and its going to stay that way for awhile yet. It never hurts to write a political leader though, gotta let 'em know.

all us "truckers " are shutting down on April 1st - we ask that no one buy any diesel fuel from the 1st until the 5th if possible. This will hopefully get the attention of DC-- please pass this on asap

Is this nation wide? Or just local?

Either way, I'll support you 100% !! I'm just curious.

Also, have you started a thread about this here on the .ORG?? Might put some more attention on it!

On Fox news in Philly they are running 'previews' of the news tonight and are talking about a 75 cent per gal. price jump in gas. Can only imagine what that would mean to diesel the way its been jumping lately! Not sure what they'll say is the reason there might be such a jump?????
