[quote:Anonymous Coward 1275523:MV8yMDA5MjY5XzMzNzYwMTA2Xzg3NzU3QjY1] Thanks for the pin... I'm all for profits...!!! This is ridiculous however. There is no "sudden" cost to the producers, suppliers, distributors, sellers, etc... This is price gouging. Plain and simple... And having drove a Peterbilt for 10 years before I went back to a easier job... I am still very well tied into the industry. There is NO WAY, NONE to make a living with fuel at $6.00/ gallon. And to the goober who attacked me... Guys in Africa cut holes in oil pipelines, scoop up the crude and place it in a drum... they then heat this drum until the crude boils, etc, etc... Read about it here...: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-18973637 Point being, Diesel is EASY TO MAKE! [/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.
