What is really weird is that diesel fuel costs MORE at the pump than does gasoline - when it is cheaper to make and is essentially a waste product of refining gasoline. Elsewhere around the world, diesel fuel is cheaper than gasoline.
I drive big rigs at work and it now costs nearly $800 to fill both tanks. Since everything comes by truck, train or ship....watch for prices of most things to increase soon. All of them rely on diesel fuel for propulsion.
