Diesel Fuel Prices Going Higher As Crude Goes North

Light, sweet crude for January delivery recently traded 50 cents, or 0.6%, higher at $88.50 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, nearing fresh two-year highs.

Right? Little did I know there was a lot more I could’ve done and still be doing to expand my fuel mileage out of my midsize SUV, and with prices these days it’ll feel like I have a fuel consulting expert in the passenger seat.
