[quote:ArmchairObserver:MV8yMDA5MjY5XzMzNzU4Nzg1XzUwM0M4RTVB] Diesel is generally priced higher than unleaded gases. Usually about 60 cents per gallon higher but you're right. No logical sense to it. Before panicking though, let me point out a couple things that I'm seeing. First off, there's a huge disparity between what these few stations are charging and their closest competitors like this 76 station: http://www.californiagasprices.com/76_Gas_Stations/Sacramento/11238/index.aspx Second thing I see is that many of these prices have been posted by the same user account on the website--mpdozer. There were already some hijinks going on with this site last night that were corrected last night. I'm wondering if something similar is happening again. Regardless of whether the prices that these stations are charging for diesel are real or not, it doesn't matter much when their competitors are charging $2 less a gallon for diesel virtually across the street. In other words, which one would you buy from? The guy charging $6 for diesel or the guy charging $4.29 for diesel across the street? Major transport doesn't usually get gas from your typical gas stations anyways. Want to control the prices? Don't cause a panic. [/quote]

Diesel SHOULD be cheaper. It is less refined than Gasoline.
You can take crude oil... heat it and Diesel will "come out" of the sludge all on it's own. Watch the truckers who keep this nation in motion stop dead in their tracks.
I know supply and demand... but no deliveries will make fuel even more expensive.
No word yet... from any media... but $6.00/ Gallon for Diesel means truckers will have to pay extra money for the privilege of delivering fuel and good. As in they will actually pay out of pocket for each mile versus make money for each mile.
Also, understand that loads often have pre-negotiated pricing. Added fuel costs aren't figured in that price.
