Diesel car bans looked like radical proposals a year ago but have now become policy in some European cities. They are the thin end of a wedge that could rebalance the European products market as less diesel is imported and more of the excess gasoline used at home. But a change in diesel and gasoline demand will be protracted because fleet renewal is slow and cars only account for roughly half of diesel demand.
