That is such bull xxxx

taxes are high on diesel and think about diesel vehicles go father per gallon if you sold it you would make less money -- big oil is greedy plain and simple - 90 billion in profits when is enough enough ?

That's my bit of wisdom for today.

Pigman, I can understand that. They can manipulate the price by the output of of each product.

I have a friend who hauls raw crude from rigs to storage. When the price is good the company sells, when the price is not and there storage tanks get full they load it on barges and ship it out to international waters and sell it to the highest bidder. Now ain't that a kick in the pants, and our government tells us there is a shortage and we need foreign oil. B.S.

Between midday Thursday, Oct. 10, and yesterday, diesel around Ft. Collins, CO went from $4.419 to $4.599. Refinery breakdowns in California probably has something to do with the higher prices. Syrian and Iranian tensions with Russia and Turkey could be goosing world prices. People who have oil furnaces may be stocking up after waiting for prices to shrink. There may be short covering going on in the futures markets.

A simple answer is QE1, QE2 and now QE3. or dollar is worth 30% less than 5 years ago. Untill someone hand cuffs the Federal Reserve and stops them from printing Monoply money. everything is going to go through the roof, look at food, gold ,oil, copper.

Diesel fuel always spikes up in October and November as the demand for home heating oil in the northeast spikes. Has been this way for MANY years. Its not politicol, even these crooks have not figured out how to manipulate the weather....yet.

There is absolutely no basis for your opinion.

Maybe you should direct some of that wisdom toward solving Canadian problems

this is not supposed to be a political forum

OK folks... let's please keep the discussion away from partisan politics and/or country bashing.

Thanks for your help.

Right on. They have to shift the refineries to Diesel to supply the power companies and heat homes. When they do that there is less throughput for Gas. It's a lack of refineries that causes the spike every year.

Once the price jumps it never goes down in the spring as much as it goes up in the fall so the pump price keeps going up.
