Parking for one day just sends a token message. We don't need trucks parked, we need energy policy reform in the US government as well as supply/demand adjustments.
We don't have the capacity to supply enough refined fuel because of lack of refineries and our huge demand for diesel.
One has to wonder if diesel pickups might be a part of the problem. 10 years ago diesel was lower priced and there were far less owners of diesel pickups. Now there are so many more diesel pickups and diesel is much more expensive. Hmmmm.
I often wondered if the extra demand created by our pickups created a shortage in supply of refined diesel.
My guess is the construction of about 10 new huge refineries would ease the stress on the supply of #2.
