Lower demand doesn't necessarily drive prices down. It could reduce volume buying leverage we have on the supplier nations. There might be a lag between the price at the pump and the price on the market.

I read an article that states a percentage of each barrel of crude is converted to diesel. That explains why diesel is more expensive than gas. But, the article didn't say what determined that percentage. Is it simply market demand ratios of other by-products required from that barrel? Or is it a technological limitation?

this is a prime example of the rich getting richer and poor getting poorer, not only are the gas companies making boat loads of money but so are the investers and stock holders of the companies and the only poeple that invest or have stocks are poeple with money, meanwhile the poor guy that has to support a family of 5 and drive 40 miles to work one way has to work double shifts to pay for fuel because his 1985 piece of crap car doesn,t get crap for gas milage, but he cant get a new car because he has enough problems putting food on the table. I know a couple poeple in this situation and i feel real lucky to be able to afford things like my 97 psd

Diesel here is on average .07 to .10 cheaper than the lowest grade of gasoline.

Fuel Prices

Ha, don't feel too depressed fellas we in Australia are paying at least $1.40 per LITRE for diesel that's Aus $6.30 per gallon or close enough to US$4.80 per gallon. I think a US gallon is slightly less than an imperial gallon but close enough for the exercise.

Price for diesel here hardly fluctuates at all despite the ups and down of oil prices however unleaded petrol (your base level gasoline I think) can and does fluctuate by up to US 68 to 75 cents per gallon within hours. As we speak unleaded petrol is about US $4 per gallon and diesel is US $4.80 per gallon.You can go mad trying to work it out but it won't make a cracker of difference.

In some of the more remote parts of Australia diesel is selling at above US$6.00 per gallon but when there are no options for 500 to 600 kilometres either way what choice do you have?

Just thought I'd chuck that in to make you feel a bit better about it all.
Cheers from Downunder.

Diesel Prices??

Can someone explain to a new diesel owner, what is making diesel so expensive? Here in Virginia where I live, gas has gone from $2.89 down to $2.27, yet diesel fuel has gone up .04 cents to $2.69! Just curious! Thanks.

thats almost worth driving for from here!
diesel prices tend to lag behind auto gas roughly a month here in fla. diesel was cheaper here for quite a while during the fuel price hikes, and will follow suit as the fuel prices fall.

Your right it's not bad, I paid $3.39 in Washington DC two weeks ago. But like everyone else I can't understand why diesel cost more than gas? How much is diesel where you live?
