The diesel VW Bugs do not get as high MPGs as the Golfs/Jettas due to aerodynamics.

Because there is less diesel in a barrel of crude means there is less of it to go around. And if the demand goes up, so does the price. Essentially, there is 2x more gasoline than diesel per barrel of crude.

Here's a link to how a barrel of crude is broken down through refining:
