Chatted with my brother in law in the UK today. Diesel is £1.65 per liter. Since four liters is 1.2 gallons, that works out to about £5.50 per US gallon.
At today's exchange rate, if I purchase of a gallon of UK diesel for my car over there, it would cost $9.00 plus the friendly 3% profit fee charged by US credit card companies in addition to unfavorable exchange rates (double dipping if you will).
That is why elsewhere in the world, they make small diesel engined vehicles for fuel economy. Despite their nay saying, the Big 3 all make small diesel engined cars and trucks everywhere but the US. I have seen them in North Africa, Europe and Asia.
