All these Diesels

Man lately i have been keeping my eye out for trucks at our local dealerships (used) and usually u will only find a diesel truck go threw there about maybe twise a year and now all of the used car dealership have 4 or 5 on each lot!!! so i called one of the dealer ships and asked why the were getting diesels and he said they are a good market and he gets them cheap. these are going as fast as they come in and they keep ordering more in! is this because of fuel prices or what?? i am not complaining of them stocking cuz i gives me something to do but is the market getting flooded with trucks? have u guys noticed this?

Could be the housing crunch. It's hurt a lot of contractors, and they tend to be heavy truck buyers.

I got a heck of a deal last fall on my F350. What I heard was that between the housing crunch and the drought last summer hammering the farmers, it was a buyer's market for diesel trucks.

Its happened around here also. We looked for almost 6 months for a diesel to buy. In the last couple weeks there have been tons of diesels sitting in the local lots. Not sure what the cause is but I like it.

Well my thought is that, for what ever reason diesel prices are still up, people just don't want to pay diesel prices any more.....I mean seriously back in Oct diesel was the cheapest by at least 10 cents a gallon and then it sky rocketed to almost 50 cents a gallon and has now leveled off........I got 100 bucks that says once Bush gets out of office fuel prices drop
