Cost of Diesel in Ca

Page 2 of 3  
Just to put things into perspective for you gentlemen across the water, my diesel fuel costs me nearly £1.00 per liter. There are 4.5 (roughly) litres to the Imperial gallon, which is slightly larger than the US
gallon.
Without going into reference books, let's say that there are four litres to a US gallon, you will probably know better than me.
So that makes my diesel £4.00 per US gallon.
I will leave you to do the conversion between English £ and US$
Please do not complain about the cost of your fuel where I can read it... !!!!!!!!!!!

You have a different form of government with differing choices made as to taxes and services. It is not really the same thing. I pay $160.00 per month in health insurance. My guess is that you do not.

You are quite correct, and it is obviously a case of horses for courses. House prices, for example, are far higher here than in the US for similar properties - up to three times more expensive I think. The average fully-mortgaged property owner here is shelling-out something in the region of £400. per month, and that is for a house that is nothing special at all.
I live in the very north of Scotland, where a vehicle is essential, as there are no services close-by. In order to get materials and hardware I have to get down to Inverness, which is a 140 mile round-trip. The fuel stations here are the most expensive in the UK.
By contrast, in the south of England, given the very high density of population, one only has to travel a few miles to get anything one might wish to buy, yet fuel costs there are substantially lower than they are where I live. It's a double-whammy...
Having said that, I live in a most beautiful corner of the globe, where the population density is similar to New Zealand : I have a quality of life that is superb, and when the conditions are right I can see with the naked eye mountains that are 100 miles away.
So perhaps I should pay for that privilige ?

Both right and left-wing governments have seen the motor vehicle as a milch-cow. Fuel in the UK carries something like 80% tax.

It is not a matter of perspective, but of relativity. Would you or would you not complain if next month your fuel cost went up 30%? That is what ours has done. Comparing your prices to ours is apples and oranges. You have to compare the rates of increase. How long has your fuel been running nearly £1.00 per liter? How long ago was it running you £0.78/L? That would be equal to the change in prices we have experienced in the US.

I said tongue in check that in NJ we have low prices and they even pump it for you, your comments about low wage jobs is pure nonsense and dosen't rate a comment. Self serve doesn't lower prices it just raises the price for the service that you used to get.

I was driving through LA on 4/30 and at peak rush hour I5 going noth and US101 South were blocked by sami-tractort trucks protesting the cost of diesl. They were arrested but it did muck up the moring commute. The price of diesel on I5 last week ranged from 2.19 to 2.55 a gallon. wolf

that is just plain old price gouging, wholesale #2 oil in NY harbor is about .98 per gallon, it can't be too much more on the west cost, but let's say it is 1.09 pre gallon, add in about .55 - .70 cents per gallon for taxes, transport and profit and you'll get what a fair price should be

The reason for the high cost of gasoline in Ca is usually ascribed to "boutique" blending of gasoline to meet Ca emission standards. What is so "boutique" about #2 diesel to cause it to be over $2.15 in Ca and only $1.45 in Atlanta? wolf

Well, OPEC can share in the blame, like now when they are going to cut production by 4% to keep prices up. They had agreed to this hold back several months ago but were going to cancel it and keep production at current levels until the Saudi Arabian representative "convinced" them to go through with their previous plans and start cutting back.
