several things here. the federal road tax is higher on diesel. true, no new refineries have been built; big oil has shut down several with the stated purpose of cutting gas supplies, thereby raising the price. i owned a ('84?) ford escort wagon diesel. when we moved to california in '85, averaged 57 mpg for the trip. i used to schedule mtce. when mpg dropped to 45! why did they stop offering cars like this?
