Get used to it. [/quote] Stop moaning? What a Pratt you turned out to be. First up, converting your Liters (the French metric system you were FORCED to adopt) should be done into U.S. gallons not the quite a bit larger Imperial gallon as was standard in the UK when I was a lad. Please try to understand that the UK is TINY! A lot of people in the USA 'HAVE' to drive 75-100 miles round trip every day to go to work and back, their are no viable bus or train alternatives outside of major cities and a lot of people need to move tools and materials, you can not get on a bus with 1000lbs of lumber to build a barn on a distant mountain! In the USA, to survive, you need your own wheels. England is about the same size as Americas smallest state,Vermont. It takes about 2 days to drive across Texas on highway 10 if you stop to sleep and eat,(I'm sure many truckers do it faster but for regular people it is quite a voyage). Try to understand that moving a truck load of Veggies 1000 miles can not be done in a Mini Cooper. 3 or 4 England's would fit inside the State of Texas alone. When all is aid and done,we pay as much of our income,or more, by necessity, than the Brits,or Europeans, it is not a choice if you want to eat and have a roof over your head. [/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.
