My father worked for Chevron for about 46 years and he has a different take. He said that supply and demand is only a fraction of it. The real answer? Look at there record profits over the last five years and the relation to cost of diesel to the consumer.
Yes demand has increased and so has the supply.
Add in all the diesel pickups that have been purchased and the increased number of Class 8 rigs on the road and you se the demand incresing but the supply is also increasing at the same level or higher The oil barons have simply used demand as an excuse. During the peak construction era diesel was at an all time high for demand yet the industry was OK with the cost of diesel still lagging gas by 40-50cents per gallon.
it simply comes down to a smoke screen as Chevron has benefited greatly from tax cuts and subsidies.
just look at major oil countries pump prices and relate that gas price to diesel. Politics created the problem and can solve the problem.2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

I don't trust politicans and think that they should make an age limit (75) and a term limit. It's time to get rid of some of the old guys that have been there a long time, it's time for a change.

Woo Hoo, So cool, took the camper out this weekend about 200 mile round trip and averaged 8mpg highway and backroads. I pulled my 9500lb camper uphill on the highway at 75mph and cruised along passing the big rigs. Screw good gas mileage and enjoy your truck
