Who cares? Same with propane, CNG, E85, anthracite coal -- none of those prices pertain to me.

These are weather-related, even though distillate consumption for heating is a pretty small percentage.

But the price for WTI Crude may be the highest since July or August 2015. Is diesel pushing crude oil higher, or is crude oil pushing diesel higher? Or both?

$2.89 -2.95 at most places in SE WI. I've seen over $3 in NW WI heading toward the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

Diesel prices seem to be higher where Kwik Trip has the most stations, and lowest where Holiday and Fleet Farm are strongest. SuperAmerica is rarely the highest, but it will match KT when they are the only two in an area.

GasBuddy shows that about half of all stations on the "highest prices" list are Kwik Trip stations.

Running from South Bend, IN to Charlotte, NC yesterday. I saw prices vary from a high of $3 to a low of $2.45. Noticed about a 4 mpg drop due to the cold weather. Going up to Indiana on Christmas Eve, I averaged around 39 with temps ranging in the mid 40 to mid 50s. Coming back yesterday, I averaged around 36 with temps from -11 to mid 20s.

2.55 here in IndianLand, SC.
I do not understand why the prices have been up. The Pet Institute is saying it's due to Iran. Really?
I think BigOil truly HATES diesel.

According to US Today, all fuel is supposed to trend up in 2018. The average increase should be about 18 cents. No real explanation given in the article.

Hates? Not sure why

Diesel doesn't go into gasoline or the lighter distillates for industrial sales and science/biotech/agritech/pharma. Automotive/marine diesel sales provide a market for it, right? Does it increase the cost of heating oil to take auto diesel? If so, isn't that just an alternative place to make profit? Is there any political pressure to keep heating oil prices down? I don't think so
