Falling demand for diesel fuel—a reflection of the US economy



It started a year ago and continues this year—less demand for diesel fuel to run 18-wheel rigs up and down the nation’s highways.

It’s another sign of a slumping U.S. economy. When there is less demand for goods and products, it is only natural there is less of a need for diesel fuel to run the big trucks delivering those items to consumers.

As Oilprice.com reported this week, “This decline in diesel demand serves as a broader indicator of economic health, suggesting that the oil and gas industry may face ongoing challenges as economic conditions continue to impact fuel consumption patterns.”
