Here in Buffalo we will pay $2.39 for Regular and $2.79 for Diesel. Just across the border in PA the prices are similar other than one Pilot station on I-90 that is $2.19 for regular. Prices are all over the board. Hard to understand the logic here.

Honestly, I don't know how anyone can complain about diesel at $2.39/gallon. It (and gas), may never be this cheap again. Enjoy while you can! I sure would.

Also, don't forget that diesel fuel has ~13% more BTU's per gallon than gasoline. Since what you're buying when you fill up is "energy" there should always be this much of a differential.

In those days the use of diesel was less than gasoline. We had the big cars with large not so efficient engines so there was an oversupply of diesel in comparison. As the use of diesel went up with diesel engines being offered in pickups the balance has turned.

IMO the use of diesel is a stronger income stream.

GAS

one of my favorite memories is vacation with dad in his 1962 Caddy. He loved that car and always wanted a caddy. WE are in AZ and had to stop for gas, Dad paid 19cents a gallon and was cussing about the high fuel prices in AZ. LOL

There are several reasons why diesel fuel is higher.
1. Refinery capacity for diesel fuel is less than that of gasoline.
2. Winter heating oil will take the same fuel stock that diesel uses.
3. Road Tax on diesel fuel is more in most states.
4. And the last and must important reason is the: RRFINERIS CAN CHARGE THAT MUCH!

And here is #5 for your list: The cost associated to make 15 PPM ULSD went out of site when the new regulations started. The catalyst to make 500 PPM LSD ran/converted for over 20 years(In a tower in the process) now it has to be changed out once a year as it is spent.............That alone reflects the cost along with what region of the country you are in. I just returned from a month in the Keys, paid $2.24/gal. most of the time fueling, cheapest was Virginia/South Carolina..........topped off back home 3 miles from my house at a station directly in front of the Refinery where I work, and paid $2.69/gal. As I was fueling the Coach, I could see the DHT II unit that makes the ULSD Along with the new 35m construction site of the new Hydrogen plant that is being built.
State road tax today is also a large factor in the pump price
Diesel Tax

A more useful comparison would be $4.50 per U.S. gallon, which is still way too much in Canada.
