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:
thats pretty cool info on that link!!!
Although I must say I still believe were getting ripped off either way...... Diesel and gas both were super crazy low just before election and now almost a dollar more......... I had a buddy buy one of those golfs and he loved it for fuel mileage.. Who cares if diesel is 4.20 per gallon if your getting 50mpgs right!!??? LOL
