Why is diesel so expensive?

Your article on gasoline and profit margins was interesting and informative. However, it failed to explain why diesel, which costs less to refine and does not have the additive packages that gasoline does, currently costs more than unleaded supreme. For years, diesel was the cheapest fuel. Now that more and more people are opting for diesel-powered trucks and cars, diesel is the most expensive fuel. Is this price gouging by the oil manufacturers or the station owners?
