I am always looking for the silver lining in any negative environment and today's was this.

While filling up my Wing today I noticed the price of diesel fuel is finally back under the price of regular unleaded. My local ma&pa station had diesel priced at $1.75 and regular unleaded at $1.79.

Let the good times roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:excited:

Diesel is still $2.09 here, but way lower than a few months ago. I can actually fill the work truck for under $100 now. Last summer it took over $200 to fill once a week.

Not to drift the thread here, but I understand that the European trend (UK included) is to tax the heck out of gasoline and fund even more social spending with it. So, their excessive gas prices are tax-driven. US gov't is planning the same insanity. "If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, tax it some more. If it stops, subsidize it!" :evil:

It would be interesting to see the cost per gallon (for an equal basis) of US and Euro fuels, with the tax burdens entirely removed to see how the actual production and distribution costs compare.
