That gap is likely to remain for a while, or even get worse. Refiners are desperately trying to produce more distillate fuels, primarily heating oil and ULSD. But they can't make diesel without making almost twice as many gallons of gasoline.Saw this while doing errands today:
That price gap is a little alarming.
An obvious mistake. Somebody raised the price for the D2 but forgot about the other one. Soon to be corrected. At this time of year, the premium stuff should be about 7 or 8 cents/gallon higher.I found premium diesel for $5 gal and d2 was $5.50. that was a bit odd
The "premium" diesel is just D2 with extra additives for higher cetane and better lubricity. Most winter diesel is D2 winterized with additives rather than blending with D1 these days.Yeah. The same station. Lucky seven. I thought it was odd also. Added a bit of oil to the fuel to add some lube to the d1
