[quote:Anonymous Coward 25017812:MV8yMDA5MjY5XzMzNzU5NTM1XzhGMEU0OUE=] [quote:dr.einstein:MV8yMDA5MjY5XzMzNzU5MjA0XzUxOTU5MTRB] why isn't the price of gasoline pegged to the value of oil at the well-head, and let's let's be done with all of this periodic and regular price-gouging by the fuel distributors. [/quote] Because you first pump crude oil then you move it to a refinery then you refine it, then you refine it some more, then you have to have a built and maintained gas station waiting to receive it when the tanker shows up. The people involved in all parts of the process need to get paid so they have a reason to go to work? Therefore a profit must be made ? The price of gasoline is fairly constant, but the "cash" in your pocket is losing value, Dollar,Pound,Euro, Yen or whatever. Try reading about 'Fiat money' and 'Supply and Demand.' It might help.

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.
