Gas and diesel fuel reached a new high price today, according to AAA. The spike in diesel costs is particularly significant, because that drives shipping costs: even if you don't drive, it will drive up the costs of goods.
"There's just not enough supply to meet demand ... and that's driving prices higher," Jim Ritterbusch, president of Ritterbusch & Associates in Galena, Ill., said of diesel's surge.Fuel costs are only going to go up, and there is nothing that can be done to reduce them - that ship has left port. But we CAN take steps to reduce the costs of commuting and traveling. And that means getting us out of cars, and onto buses and trains. And if you're pulling money OUT of trains and buses, it means that you are working AGAINST the best interests of the American people.
