While gasoline consumers may be jumping for joy or pumping with glee at falling gasoline prices, diesel consumers are being left out of the party, wanting in. Unfortunately, there's not much relief for diesel consumers in the months ahead.

Unlike gasoline, distillate (heating oil and diesel) peak consumption season is in the winter. Why is this, you ask? Distillate fuel can yield both diesel and heating oil because diesel and heating oil are very similar heavier oils. The problem here is that the Northeastern United States still consumes gobs of heating oil during the cold months, not natural gas. That means that peak consumption for distillate fuels during these months, keeping pressure on prices.

It certainly doesn't...

Not only sucks for them, they drive most goods that you buy in stores, and yes your cost of goods goes up with it. Too bad they don't go down when diesel goes down!

Donatelo: diesel engines run better on diesel or biodiesel. And we need them b/c they have the better torque for hauling.

diesel has its place. But we all pay for high diesel (high cost of transportation of goods means higher prices at the store).
