One reason for the higher price of Diesel is because of higher road taxes.
The primary users of on road diesel are trucks which cause more road damage
per gallon of fuel burned than the average gas vehicle, hense a higher road
tax per gallon.
A number of years ago, I got a tax credit based on the higher road tax when
I bought my Audi diesel. The tax credit was for NEW diesel cars and light
trucks and was equal to the expected higher taxes over the life of the
vehicle. I don't know if the credit is still in effect..
