  •  Diesel is also cheaper than gasoline in Europe (1+ / 0-)

    If France, diesel was significantly cheaper than petrol because the govt. subsidized the cost of diesel (mostly for agriculture).

    •  That stuff drives me nuts. (0+ / 0-)

      Even when considering petroleum-derived diesel, I can't figure out what a natural price would be because refineries dictate so much of supply and demand.

      My poor unsophisticated brain thinks diesel should be cheaper than gas because it's a less refined product than gasoline. It (and Jet-A, etc) is basically just kerosene.
