Keep in mind that the state tax on motor fuels vary greatly. We really get hosed in PA and the tax is going to go up in the coming two years.

Exactly!
The real issue is the tax rate on Diesel.
Diesel itself is and should always be cheaper that gas.

But even if it costs 25% more, most diesels get 50% better mpg than comparable gassers.

There are stations in Va. where diesel and 87 octane gas are running now about the same price while 93 octane gas is $.60 more.

Also diesel produces 20% more energy than gasoline and also takes less refining.

One other factor that affects the price of diesel is that we export large amounts of it, mostly to Europe. I don't know why, but the amount that we export fluctuates wildly. See U.S. Exports of Biomass-Based Diesel Fuel (Thousand Barrels per Day)

Gasoline actually takes more refining than diesel. Demand dictates price.

Supply and demand should dictate price in a free market.
Unfortunately, with unequal taxes involved, the government has screwed this up as well.
Also, since gas and diesel are made from the same base ingredient, demand for one reduces supply of the other.
And last but not least, we all know the price of a barrel of oil is not just driven by market force, but politics.

In NB CA just observed a $.04 per liter difference with Diesel lower then regular gas. About $.16 per US Gallons.. Wow never seen that in years. Our fuel prices are regulated by the NY wholesale prices.

I just looked up gasoline vs. diesel taxes per state and the difference ranges from near zero to a maximum of 10 cents per gallon, with the average nationwide being 48.8 cents/gallon for gasoline and 54.1 cents/gallon for diesel, a difference of 5.3 cents per gallon. Not really much of a factor when comparing pump price.
