So the break for big oil is over...( if it makes it all of the way through)
We still move most everything in the USA by diesel power. Be it Truck, ship, or Rail.
guess who is going to pay even more?
I am just holding onto my wallet, and trying to decide how soon to buy a horse and buggy.

Saw one 76 station today selling diesel for $4.29, about .90 more than rug, and .50 more than same-brand stations (owned by Conoco-Phillips), across the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles.

It's $3.64 here in Austin TX, and we are selling B100 for $3.39. I can't image people paying $3.64 a gallon. Some of our clients go through 1,000's of gallons a month.
