On way to airport to fly out Monday AM I saw gas in central PA running from a high in my town of $3.89 down to $3.75 for regular. Diesel was between $4.09-$4.25 I think by summer, assuming the wheels haven't fallen off by then, we'll see spikes into the $5.25-5.75 realm for regular and it won't ever go back below $4.75. Diesel will rocket past $6 and wait till it stays about $5.25 which means heating oil next year in the area of $4.50
Big ears won't be happy till it's $8 or more and helps to drive people back into the cities and to limit their ability to be mobile. After all, he's said he knew his enviro policies would drive up electricity and energy costs and that he felt Americans should pay a price closer to the $8 range European's pay (love his fair share mentality) for gas.
With winter so far being a middle of the road one in regards to cold, unless we get huge cold spell we should have lots of fuel left in the pipe line to add to road fuel stockpiles but sure diesel prices won't go down much. Oh and want to know why "home heating fuel" skyrocketed? We had to have low sulfur diesel for on road vehicles which costs more to make and also burns less efficient than the "old" formula. Just like all the ethanol that has propped up corn states regardless that it's costing the rest of us millions. Ethanol has cost us in more ways than just at the pump, it also has lower mpg than non-ethanol fuel, water in fuel issues, and needs to use more expensive materials in fuel tanks and fuel systems to resist the corrosive nature of ethanol. And to help head off the negatives your forced to go add fuel catalyst (smurf piss) to keep your gas from killing your older power equipment, vehicles, motorcycles, boats, etc...
