Different grades of Diesel

I've noticed that there seems to be more of variance in pricing of diesel fuels between the different brands of gas stations? Does anyone know if these differences are due to differences in terms of the performance ratings? i.e Cetane ratings.

could be that some sell LSD (low sulphur diesel), and other sell ULSD (ultra low sulphur diesel).

LSD = 500 ppm of sulphur
ULSD - 15 ppm of sulphur

By December 1, all road use diesel will have to be ULSD.
