The new diesel prices is what kills me. For most of my life diesel was cheaper than gas then it flipped with new diesel refining and extra taxes. Folks don't seem to care(or think) about how much that affects the price of everything.What blows my mind is that so many people only see the direct effect of rising gas prices (ie: how much it costs them to drive and fill up). They have no clue how it affects EVERYTHING ELSE!!!!!! Gas prices go up, the cost of transporting goods goes up, that makes the cost of the goods go up... The rising gas prices are just the the first step in a whole pyramid of rising prices. Food, clothing, utilities, medical, you name it.
