The future cost of Diesel is rising

Prices are up as oil is over $52/barrel.  But what is happening in the future?  BP predicts the future of demand – a future which indicates demand is at best flat.  What this means to me is the price will really depend on the willingness of countries to hold back supply.  
 
But, for diesel, unless there is a viable alternative, the price will be up no matter which curve is chosen as it will represent a greater proportion of total volume in the distillation process.
