Oh, is that their excuse?

BTW, now that summer is winding down all of the gassers are getting the benifit of less demand, but us diesels are stuck for at least a few more weeks...months.

The oil companies have said that demand for gasoline has made them refine diesel into gasoline, thus a shortage of diesel. Now at this time of year the folks in the NE are beginning to stock-up on fuel oil (basically diesel) for the fall and winter so there is high demand for diesel. By the time the winter demand dies down it will be spring and people will start hitting the road for spring break and the demand for gasoline will push more diesel refinement into gasoline.

We diesels don't stand much of a chance. Seems when diesel was a small percentage of the consumer market, diesel was cheaper. Now that diesels have become more mainstream and more popular, the oil companies have begun to capitalize on the market and come up with excuses that run from every kind of increase in domestic demand to the emerging China and India markets. I wonder how many Chineese and Indians actually drive diesel cars and trucks anyway...I know its a greater percentage than in the U.S., but in countries where the average income is less than $100/month, how many can actually afford them?

Off of soap box now.

When I posted the $3.29/gal price of ULSD above, I should have pointed out that the price of the former highway diesel fuel in CA, LSD, was $3.39/gal in San Diego on 08-18-06. At least the price of the new diesel fuel is not more than the price of the old fuel two weeks ago!

Moderators, it would be great if the other cost of fuel thread:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/what-cost-fuel-your-area-3527-6.html
be combined with this thread…
and even greater if the combined thread be moved to the more appropriate forum:
Towing (Hitches, Braking, and Vehicles).

Thanks
Bill

Unbelieveable Timing

We're getting ready to head out to Yellowstone for a two week trip and the price of gas has gotten to an almost respectable $2.59 for unleaded.
