When it jumped like this last week (over .40 in one night) I kind of expected it to go down like gasoline has, but it's actually stayed the same or even gone up a couple cents instead. Currently at $3.29. I was wondering when we're gonna hear from the truckers on this...remember when it was up to 2.70 or so in the last couple years and they were raising holy hell about how much it was going to cost them. Owner-operators have to be getting killed...or are they already dead.

Fuel was 3.15 last week.

miamioffshore I'm thinking they have dedicated more production towards gasoline to lower it in order to make more of the masses happy and sacraficed diesel. Imagine if we all drove diesel vehicles? Since diesel is cheaper and easier to make and if they produced it in mass quantites it would be mucho cheap.

Thats what I was thinking
