Guys, keep in mind of the tax structure by individual state. Diesel is taxed sometimes by as much as $.39 cents per gallon, lowest to highest. Diesel Fuel Taxes - Compare Taxes On Diesel Fuel In All 50 States
Then there is the sales tax multiplied on top of that(for those states with ST) increases by another 8-9%.
Also, whats around the corner is complaints by those states with ST, that the tax revenue has decreased, due to lower tax collected at the pump. The general rule is this; the government burn rate is fixed, plus an allowed yearly tax increase for whatever excuse is given at the time. When taxes collected on fuel greatly decrease, as is the case here, "they" will get their pound of flesh from somewhere else. Or, reduce spending, yeah right! Buckle your seat belts everyone.
