You know, I have a real problem with the crap about the prices with inflation. I thought we didn't have any inflation for quite a while. Give me a break. In fact, give me some Fuel!

Oh darn...get to ride the Harley...

Just getting our F350, I'm on the "oh darn...CAN'T drive my new dually", but can drive the Jeep! The only reason that works is because regular unleaded is about 50 cents cheaper than diesel, because the Jeep doesn't get any better mileage than the truck does!

Ok guys, I have to be a bit of a girl here and ask what you might think of as a dumb question... (this might have already been mentioned on this thread, but I couldn't find it) I remember when diesel used to be cheaper than gas (I even think that was a reason for buying a diesel vs gas car/truck) what happened to make diesel more $$$ than regular or even supreme unleaded? Please help me get a clue. Thanks for the info.

xoxoxo,
Deb

Deb:

One of, I believe, is Chevron's plants up north is down (of course- they say it's the one that is a "big diesel producer", but when in fact, they ALL make diesel...it's part of the process in making gas), and it just then comes down to supply & demand. I also heard that diesel was being stocked up more, so someone in their infinte wisdom, found that selling it to another country could make them more money. CHina has been a big culprit in our recent woes, including cement, steel, and other commodities.

And as long as we're on this subject...I'm just about as right-wing as one can get, but when it comes down to a product that 100% of the population needs, I really do think some regulation is in order. Think of it...electricity was fine until they 'messed with it', trying to make it a capitalistic venture, and what did we get? 10 years of contracts that are the highest in the nation (thanks, Gray!). There is supply vs. demand, but when demand is 100%, then supply becomes an issue. Then business tries to figure out how to screw with supply. The electric companies got away with it, and just left a lesson for the oil companies to use for their own good...
