There definately is a much larger market for diesel, since only small cars use petrol, while everything else (exept for space shuttles) is on diesel. Of course, companies are trying to increase their income - who isn't? Anyway, fuel prices have absolutely nothing to do with their cost of production, it's all politics, taxes, economics, etc.

Recently, I've noticed that each time the news says that fuel prices are going up I feel something like relief. "Maybe someone will finally get a hit in the wallet and start taking the bus." I know that I'll have to pay more at the pump, but my increase will be smaller than everybody else's. Maybe they'll stop laughing at my aeromods?

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
