Diesel Price headed much higher in 2020?

Interesting article, albeit from one source. What caught my eye is that the International Maritime Organization rules for cleaner diesel on ships kicks in in the year 2020. This may raise the price of diesel substantially.

Please do not turn my post into a political discussion. You are welcome to start your own post on the political or environmental aspects of the issue, but please don't use my post to do it. Thank you.

I know for a fact that one of three things will happen to diesel fuel prices by 2020. They will go up, down, or stay the same. NOTHING ELSE IS GUARANTEED!!!

Popcorn anyone?????

These stories surface often with a little different twist each time .................It sells magazines, papers etc... I will believe it when it happens but I doubt it will.

Not too worried about maritime you ought to see some of the ships out there and most don't play by rules................. they will flag in countries that don't have rules.......................... Not too many cargo or other ships are actually flagged in the United States or Europe for that matter most are flagged in other countries.

If diesel goes up so will everything else. All goods are transported by trucks and trucks primarily burn diesel.

I think up until the late '70s most freight was still transported by rail. Might be headed back in that direction...

Maybe but I have been hearing that for the last 20 plus years. But freight still has to get from the rail yard / to where it is going.
