Default Diesel Sales Are Up

From the folks over at AutoBlog Green: Diesel sales are up 35% this year. They claim 44% of all diesels sold last year in the US were Jettas.

Diesel Sales Jump, We Ask "How High"?

$32/gal urea? Is that the dealer price? I though I saw it at Autozone for under $10...

Urea ought to cost about the same as windshield washer fluid -- about $2 a gallon, $3 at the most. I'll bet Walmart is not selling very much of it at those prices.
