Rising diesel gas prices mean rising prices for many things

WOWK TV -- When the price of groceries go up, sherry hickey notices. "Milk has gone up. All my groceries have went up."

One big reason is because diesel fuel prices are through the roof.

In some places, the price per gallon has gone up by 45 cents over a few weeks.

Trucker, Charles Buck says the load he's hauling will probably cost more than usual for the company that is going to buy it.

"It's frustrating, and it doesn't make a lot of sense why it goes up and down all the time," says Buck, who just paid $433.38 to fill up his rig.

The cost of shipping gets passed on to the customer just like anything else.

Refineries control which products they make out of crude oil. they are passing higher costs on to businesses, who then pass it on to consumers.

If it is delivered by truck, diesel prices affect the delivery costs. Be angry!

They just keep refining and exporting fuels and raising the prices in the US in the process. Costs will continue to go up, unless shipped by rail for the longer distances and use of other fuels like natural gas in fleets.

This has been the case. Since 2005. Diesel soared long ago. Inflation has too, of course NOT according to the US Gov. Collusion.

Ever since 2006 or 2007 when ultra low sulpher diesel was mandated, diesel fuel has been almost 50 cents higher a gallon then gas. ULSD was mandated for emmissions along with, DPF, EGR and exhaust after treatment which all add to complexity and cost of new tractors and also lower fuel mileage which is passed to the consumer.

Not really news. It's been this way for several years. Ever since fuel prices spiked about 5 years ago now. When the world economy dropped, food prices stayed about the same, though.
