    When are the Trucking Companies going to say that Enough is Enough with the Price of Oil in the US? The Consumers are already struggling with the Economic Downturn and with Gas Prices on the Rise, it is going to cripple the American People. We rely on Trucking Companies to get our Supplies we need in life to the Stores at which we shop. I know there is other transportation means out there like Trains, Cargo Ships, etc. but without the trucks to pick them up at the Warehouses to transport them, we are not going survive. We need the Trucking companies to inform the Government that the Fuel prices need to be rugulated like everything else. If the Government can Regulate Utilities, Phone Companies, etc., Why not the Oil Companies raping the Average joe of the Gas hee needs to get to work and the Grocery Store to survive!

    Trucks need to run on solar panels and goofy windmills.

    At least the truckers get to pass the added expense onto their customers unlike the working stiff who needs his car to get back and forth to work.

    He's really screwed.

    True, but we dont buy 400 gallons at a time, and we dont get 7 miles to the gallon either. Even passing it on to the customer does not help. those guys dont make lots of money.

    The exact same thing happened in 2008. Tighten your belt and hang on for the ride. Maybe this time we won't let them steal all our wealth and resources bailing out their rich Investor friends, at our expense, while telling us how much they care and feel our pain.
