No harm meant but...
Most trucks run on diesel...
You are responding to something I wrote over 1 year ago!! Diesel fuel has been going up too you know!
And you are right, diesel fuel is going up as well but locomotives also run on diesel fuel although locomotives are more effiecient for this sort of thing anyways.

of us know locomotives run on diesel fuel, not gas. I am surprised you knew that, from how long you have been hiding in the closet...I would of thought that you would think we still use steam power.
PS- Keep up with reading.
