Despite diesel being zero rated,NFL Jerseys Clearance, a price query conducted at various gas stations in and around Georgetown confirmed that diesel is, in fact, more expensive than gasoline. On average, the price of gasoline (per litre) is $229.50, compared with $234.56 per litre of diesel.According to pump attendants and to the management of some gas stations, the price of diesel has been higher than the price of gasoline for approximately three weeks now. When asked why the price of diesel was so high, one gas station owner simply said,Cheap Jerseys From China, “We buyin’ it more dear (expensive) now.”Many eyebrows have been raised over the last few weeks as drivers pass gas stations and note that gasoline is indeed cheaper than diesel. This would have been unheard of a few years ago. And this phenomenon is not restricted to Guyana, it occurs worldwide.It is common knowledge, and just about any CXC Chemistry student would be able to explain this,Wholesale China Jerseys, that diesel requires less refining and less crude oil to produce. Accordingly, it would be expected that diesel should be cheaper than gasoline. Looking more specifically at gasoline and diesel from a more global perspective, why is diesel becoming more expensive than gasoline?One of the reasons can be traced to the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico which have been disrupting oil wells, refineries and fuel shipments. Once the hurricanes have passed and the oil wells and refineries have again begun to work at full capacity, they focus their efforts on producing the product which was and is in the greatest demand – gasoline.Another reason can be attributed to the principle of supply and demand, which states that if the demand for a product rises,NHL Jerseys From China, so does the price. Over the last few years, the global demand for diesel has been rising. In some European countries,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, more than half of the cars have diesel engines. Standard diesel fuel is also more heavily taxed than gasoline in most countries.Along with this, in many North American and European countries, there is an increase in the demand for heat,Cheap NFL Jerseys, especially during the winter season. This heat is produced through the consumption of oil. This oil is taken from the same source from which gasoline and diesel are derived – crude oil. The increase in the demand for crude oil to be used for heating increases the competition, and the price, for crude oil.The Government of Guyana, in a move to help cushion the effects of the increasing cost-of-living, zero-rated diesel. Similar facility was not extended to gasoline. However, just a short while after this facility has been extended to diesel, the price of gasoline — which is not zero-rated — is lower than the zero-rated diesel fuel.
