    Its only cheaper because gas has gone through the roof again. Just a few short weeks ago it was 1.89. Now its 2.15 here. Diesel is 1.98

    10 years maybe:rolleyes: I have been on the diesel kool-aid for much longer than 10 years, it's cyclical for the vast majority of business owners to switch from diesel to gasoline trucks as fuel price's change. Diesel did rise today to $2.05, but gasoline went up to $2.32:). I can stop just about anywhere in the Greater Memphis area & diesel is cheaper buy 25 cents sometimes a large price gap in those consistent high price'd area's of town for both gas or diesel.

    At some point the bubble will burst and the Gasburners will be whinning, we diehard oil burners are getting some payback on our investments. payup

    They have been on a tear here, gas is at 2.50 but diesel has been slowly creeping to 2.23-2.25.
