    The majority of the difference is caused by a lower tax rate on diesel (gasoil). See http://www.seic.gov.do/combust/aviso.htm

    In the US, diesel is actually more expensive then gasoline, here its the other way around. Just different taxes I believe.

    in France Diesel is 20% cheaper than petrol, because of lower tax too.

    just my 2 cents...

    Do you think there is any coincidence that NYMEX Crude closed at $71.95 today?
    This is down from a July High of $80.05/BBL.

    I do not know how long this will last???
