While the price of gasoline is up about 14% this year, diesel has climbed about 50%, to $5.35 a gallon, according to AAA.


The recent gains for diesel increased the gap between the two to an all-time high of $1.61. A year ago, it was just 23 cents.


What's going on? The Ukraine war is apparently one factor, as is refining capacity. For example, Russia‚Äôs exports of diesel have been more impact than those of its crude oil.


All this added cost to transport goods is a factor in still high inflation.


The large premium will shrink eventually - but not any time soon.
