    Its called supply and demand. If they can get away with charging it and you buy it then they are going to keep high prices.

    That makes the $3.47 I paid today not so bad. That's just sad. I'm glad I only burn about a gallon an hour at 2300 RPMs on my tractor. Anything else would be a killer. I feel for you guys that run diesels all day everyday. It must be tough.

    That's the thing that kills me about supply and demand. If you take a look at diesel consumption which is an oil and diesel comes out of the refining first with a lot less processing it should always be cheaper. Years ago around GA it was cheaper to get a diesel because of the fuel prices being less than gas but that changed a few years back. Now diesel is always more expensive and not much more demand. CARB in California regulates all of our gas emmissions on trucks down to blowers but don't even have a standard for diesel passenger vehicles because there are not enough of them. So where is all of this supposed demand coming from on top of a cheaper fuel to produce?

    low demand for diesel + low supply for diesel = high price of diesel

    also there are new epa regulations so that also hasn't help. the price of a diesel engine went up because of this too

    the new ULSD requires more refining and more additives to make up for the lost sulfur. that is on reason, the other is someone wants to get rich to buy a new jet.
