But I'm going out on a limb and predicting the spread between ULSD and RUG -- currently about 40 cents/gallon in Minnesota and 42 cents nationwide -- is about as wide as it is going to get for this cycle. I think over the next few months that gasoline will rise more than diesel.
.... short NY Harbor -- buy Gasoline?

It's a hunch, not investment advice.

Diesel is currently about 30 cents a gallon more expensive than regular unleaded down here on the Alabama gulf coast. Tonight at the Circle K Exxon, the spread was:

RUG: $2.329
MID: $2.609
PRE: $2.909
Diesel: $2.629

Those prices are more or less the same as all the other stations; unleaded has spiked over the last few days. A week ago it was about 10 cheaper.

$2.99 this morning NW Indiana at a station that does not play the exempt tax pricing game. It's $3.15 posted at my Exempt Diesel stations so add $0.29 tax for true price of $3.44 out of pocket cost. Quite a difference in cost!

Arrow *IF* diesel continues to go up ~ and stays up

*IF* diesel continues to go up ~ and stays up. (long term)

It will support higher NADA-KBB retail values in the future.

Seems to me the reverse would be more likely. If diesel is more expensive, diesel cars will command a smaller premium over gasoline. Sad thing is most buyers will say "but the fuel is more expensive" and not calculate that, despite the higher fuel cost, the cost per mile for a diesel is lower.

It is from $2.88 to $3.08 here in Sheboygan as of Jan 13. I usually buy from the stations I trust and of course their price is a closer to the higher figure.

You are 110 % correct

... Because I did not complete my post

... there is a (close) price relationship on petroleum products.

... Crude, N. Y. Harbor, and Gasoline move in the (general) same direction.

... several months ago when prices were 'bout double, TDi cars were "KING."

... 'cause along with the better diesel MPG (in general) there was the help of dieselgate

... IMO the VW TDi cars still available, will do well on retail values, compared with gassers with the same condition and mileage

... again you are correct ~~ cost per mile is "KING."
