Diesel here is about $4.60 per gal. I've made up my mind not to worry about this as these prices can't last long. The high prices will create a recession and then the prices will drop. It's just too bad that everyone except the oil execs will suffer as a result.

If my memory (whateverthatis) surves me correct, in the FMCA magazine indicates most states charge more tax on diesel than gas-- and rightly so due to the W&T on the roads. But I believe the main reason is BECAUSE THEY CAN. The States IMHO will not take on the big gas boys-- just to much lobbying money to lose. They could make it very simply. Only allow them to charge a fixed amount above the cost (adjusted for different deliveries) i.e. 30 cents above their cost. s/Toby

I ment to add that this rule would apply during national disasters as determined by each state. Our free market system would resist any fixed limited profit system all the time. s/Toby

I would think that you guys would be well aware of the number of BIG trucks traveling the interstate system, literally millions...

My point is that we all use something that is hauled in these trucks. There is no way the trucking industry is going to take it in the shorts, they will pass the increased costs of fuel to us the consumer...

So it is not just the diesel RV owner who is going to be hurt by the cost of diesel, but everyone who buys any product what got to the market via a diesel truck, which I would guess is about 99% of everything we buy.

I wrote to a Senator and expressed my concerns, he answered and went into a long story about the arctic and building new refineries.

Why? Because they have it and you need it. Simple economics.
