Diesel 34.6% higher than regular

For several weeks now around Detroit diesel has been $3.89 while regular unleaded is exactly a dollar cheaper. 34.6 % is pretty significant!
Has the time come where Diesel engines are strictly for the power and torque where needed and no longer looked at as a operating cost saver?
Is there really anyone who could benefit from a Transit diesel in any way? At max towing isn't the Ecoboost still the cheaper option with no torque deficit?

In my opinion the diesel option comes down to fuel economy more than anything else.
But if the current 34.6% higher cost of diesel fuel is something that's going to stick around for a while, is there an increase in fuel economy?
