Little relief ahead for diesel consumers

GasBuddy Blog -- 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.

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