Unnamed Administration sources reported that Lincoln Dale said:

  - Gas is typically harder to store lots of than Diesel.  LOTS harder.
    one of the 'nice' properties of Diesel is that it doesn't catch fire 
easily. (except under extreme
    temperature or extreme pressure, or both).
    you most definitely cannot say the same thing about Gas.

Yes, Diesel is more benign that gasoline/petrol or LPG/natural gas.
(It's not clear which you mean given international variations
in English..)

Its flashpoint is ~110F. Gasoline's about -34F. 

But note Diesel is the close brother to another substance...

Jet fuel is literally #1 Diesel /aka kerosene. So once it's lit,
the flashpoint is equally moot.
