Other way around. High volume items are cheaper to produce. They don't want to induce more Diesel demand. The refineries are set up to produce mostly gasoline, it would cost them money to shift production focus to something else.

Because that would mean less cheap gas available over here. Diesel can be cracked down into more gasoline.
