Growing Difference in Gas & Diesel Prices?

Where I live, the price of diesel has been getting higher and higher lately as compared to regular gas. It's now about 40 cents higher. Are others seeing this where you live as well?

In NM and AZ gas and diesel are within 10 cents (some stations close to even). The exception is truck stops that are at least 40 cents higher than in town. I guess they are screwing the truckers now. Used to be truck stops had the cheapest diesel.

Diesel is about even in Denver too, but higher than gas in the mountains. Right now the least expensive stations in the western suburbs are $1.99 - $2.01 for diesel.

Diesel lower in CA.

Diesel is still significantly lower than gasoline and has been for a couple of years. That is a welcome change from the norm where diesel has been higher than gasoline for years and almost hit $5.00 per gallon a few years ago.
