To mat6149: diesel does not cost less to refine than gasoline, they are products of the same process
Diesel costs more because supply and demand, you get half as much diesel from a barrel of oil as you do gasoline
and while gasoline demand has dropped significantly diesel demand has not dropped near as much
and its not a 20 cent increase pv2004 it is a 5% increase on the wholesale price prior to fuel taxes

Diesel should cost less than gas since it cost less to refine.

Petrobras Announces 5% Increase to Diesel Price Effective Wednesday? Higher prices for diesel? Brazil can do what they want, no effect on US fuel prices. What about all that ethanol they produce from sugar cane?
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
