well there are allot of factors. long story short our Dollar has went to crap and we cant buy as much oil from the middle east or anywhere Else because the price of oil is 105 bucks a barrel. your going to see prices rise on all kinds of things that is traded on the world market, most if not all commodities are going up and its going to hurt us in the pocket book. market goes down and the commodities market goes up. that is where i would put my money. metals, live stock wheat, and soybeans yep bio diesel is going to get more expensive to make too. hold on boys its going to be a rough ride and isn't going away anytime soon until the Fed reserve can get the value of the dollar back up.

Re: WTF I paid $3.87 per gallon today. Whhy has gas not gone up?

not being a smart a$$, but unless I missed something the question as to why diesel has went up alot more than gasoline has not been answered. I had been thinking the same thing before this thread was started, it wasn't all that long ago that diesel was always about.20 cents cheaper. I realize ULSD has changed that to some degree but why does the difference between gas and diesel keep getting further and further apart?

Exactly what I was thinking. The answer sounded way more like double speak & smoke and mirrors instead of explaining why Diesel has gone up in price so much and gasoline has stayed about the same.
