I know asking this is like asking someone to tell me who will win the Superbowl next year, but does anyone have an educated guess on the price of diesel in the coming year? Specifically if it would get back to being less than regular fuel. As it stands right now, diesel is about 15-20 cents more a gallon....and only a year ago diesel was about 5 cents below regular.<BR><BR>

I don't understand why it's so expensive. Is it only in the US that's it's like that. I remember the diesel was cheaper in Europe but that was years ago.<p>Diesel is about 15% more expensive yet still gains 40%+ in gas milege. I wonder if crude oil companies do that for more profit since it's more economical.

I can't give you an educated guess but as far as the price is ocncerned, I can careless. It's not like I can buy gas/diesel ahead of time so whatever price will be 6 months later, 1 year later, 2 years later, I think we all just have to accept it. And since the majority of Americans live in the surburbs, we are depedent on cars so much, even if the price is $10/gallon, we would still drive, just a matter of driving more or less

I've always wondered why diesel fuel is more expensive here. At the nearby gas stations, diesel is usually the same price as Premium unleaded. I've heard that it may go down once low-sulfur fuel is mandated next year, and I hope it does becasue my Mom is planning on getting a diesel Passat for her next car.

In reality, there's nothing we can do about the prices, we don't set them so whatever it's given we have to accept them. That's why I don't worry about it regardless of how much it is.<p>Sorry I couldn't answer your question but that's how I feel.
