I planted a palm tree out behind my house; it's not doing so well

To The Daily Sun,

Why are home heating oil prices higher then regular gasoline? Gasoline cost more too refine and also has a 30 cent federal and state tax. Home heating oil is a very dirty oil when compared with diesel oil and only has a one and a quarter cent state tax. Most home heating oil dealers have the same price and deals, gasoline dealers can have a 20 cent or more difference a few miles apart — it's called competition.

It appears price fixing is rampart at many levels; maybe refiners are refining less home heating oil too drive the price up, or it may be its the global warming crowd that wants us too burn less fuel oil. I planted a palm tree behind my house; it's not doing very well.
