Diesel fuel prices in the United States are breaking records. This can lead to an increase in the cost of transportation and an increase in the prices of products.
The cost of diesel fuel in the United States has reached a record high. According to the Gas Buddy agency, which The Drive edition refers to, the cost of one gallon of diesel fuel in the United States has reached $5.16. That is, 1 liter costs $1.36. And, most interestingly, diesel is now more expensive in the United States than gasoline – the difference is about $1 per gallon.
It should be noted that most passenger cars in the United States have gasoline engines. However, trucks are refueled with diesel fuel. And this means that the cost of freight transportation (and, consequently, the price of goods) will grow.
