    New Euro regs on diesel (sulfhur %) is putting a HUGE squeeze on what is called the Futures market HO contract. HO, heating oil, AKA diesel fuel) has been on a tear the past days due to demand in Euro, which diesel is termed gasoil or GO by the trade, as well as demand in the US.

    Bottom line is diesel pump pricing is really going to move up.

    Thanks for the heads up. Glad I never got that F-250 diesel.

    Rates for everything will now go up even more. Labor, Commodities....:confused:
