Oil Supply and Refinery considerations...
More will be added shortly...
Diesel fuel currently is being treated like a "premium" fuel over gasoline and other fuels primarily due to:
Refinery capacity shortages to refine an abundance of crude oil
Refinery cracking methods yielding alamingly low percentages of Diesel
Incredibly high and increased exportation of raw Diesel fuel to other countries (Europe)
The refining of Diesel fuel to Ultra Low Sulfer Fuel, enabled the export market
Solutions to the above mentioned problems?
Increase amount of refineries, build new equipment (Government Stimulus).
Allow building of refineries by limiting the EPA's involvement in such an undertaking
Only allow building of refineries that use cracking methods that yield larger %'s of Diesel.
Allow new refineries to be owned by new businesses!
Greatly reduce or remove exportation of distillates to other countries.
Domestic Oil Production Ramp Up!
Domestic Oil production needs to be increased
Domestic oil produced in the USA should under no circumstances be expored!
