Well, it finally happened!

Diesel is less expensive than gas!

Today regular gas is $2.19, diesel $2.18.

Mixed feeling here. Our monthly oil checks keep going down.

Not to worry, there will be another phony reason to raise the price so the Corporations and investors can make more at the expense of the general public. Just my 1/2 gallons worth...... I'm loving the low prices myself.

Didn't look at the price of regular gas yesterday, just the diesel was $2.26 as opposed to $2.60 something less than two weeks ago.

Pray there is not a rain storm, 1000 miles out in the Atlantic or the price will skyrocket.
Or labor Day, which ever comes first

Enjoy, we here in the Great White North are hovering in around the $1.28/liter. For you folks who don't speak English, that is $3.75 U.S. per U.S. gallon. But our Diesel is the good stuff, it's Green.....

Does anyone have a theory behind the diesel/gas price difference? The old reasoning used by the oil companies for the higher price of diesel was the cost to refine which was driven up by gummit fiddling with regulations. So when diesel now is less than gasoline, has the cost to refine become cheaper? Or ... will the old supply/demand mantra be used? It certainly can't be due to a calm Middle East.

How about having fun with paranoia and call the recent diesel vs gasoline price spread a ... conspiracy? The collusion of big oil and the makers of Diesel engine cars (imported of course). Basic known fact for a long time has been that US car buyers have shunned diesel car engines because of the higher cost of the fuel. Drop the price of diesel fuel and there may be a surge of interest in the new imports with Diesel engines.

The pendulum may swing the other way if the EPA churns out another inane regulation that will once again drive up the cost of diesel. After all, the EPA does have a track record of being anti-diesel. Well, anti-anything that burns for that matter. Who will fight to raise the cost of diesel fuel? Makers of electric cars, lithium battery manufacturers (China), greenies (Sierra Club), solar and wind industries, and whatever politician that gets hefty "donations" from all of the above.

To dirty the mix even more, the producers of biodiesel additives may be in a quandary over how to approach the lowering price of diesel. They may stand to gain from increased diesel sales, but will their bio products be forced to sell at a lower cost? Will the makers of chemical products designed to counter biodiesel sludge, be ecstatic over the thought of higher sales? Fuel filter manufacturers may be doing the same happy dance.

Not sure about the guessing prowess of you guys, but my crystal ball never has been reliable when it comes to future oil prices. Considering that I've spent a lifetime in the oil/gas production profession, you'd think by now I would have a handle on "guessing right".

Diesel is a global commodity. Gasoline is a regional commodity. Even within individual states in the USA, there can be several formulations of gasoline. California is a perfect example. Same diesel everywhere, but several gasoline products. The supply vs. demand dynamic is very different, thus the pricing.

How about this theory, the middle east (war?) is drawing down so diesel fuel for war machines are not needed.When we occupied the middle east diesel fuel was needed to keep the machines running, lots of diesel fuel. Prices rose to curb the public from using to much. Do I believe that? Like the moon is made of cheese. Politics and the rich get richer. We are held slaves to the politicians and "big oil".

Yep, on the news last night they said a Bp refinery was down to 50% production so expect gas prices to be up from 60 cents to a dollar in the Midwest. Prices went up in Mi. 70 cents where we are and maybe more in some places.

Here where I live (ND) gas is $2.79, diesel $2.59, but the price does change from city to city. And we have a refinery right next store, and lots of local oil, so we pay more. Just remember it could always be worse.
