I think most people don't value/respect what OTR trucks & operators do for N.A..It seems most veiw them as a nuisance on the road, even as our very life depends on them . I've spent a good bit of time working around different Ports in this country LA,miami,Galviston, savanna ,N.Y.etc. Amazing how much truck traffic in & out. Trains too Run on Deisel... Cargo ships diesel... farm Equipment diesel...Hell two days ago Off road diesel was 4$ /gal and I had to sign an affidavit saying it was for my farm Equipment WTF really ? I know Its going to cost me "alot " more to maintain my farm ... Which means I'll produce less quantity and charge more for products ... O yea and my RE.taxes went up 30% too ... I see trouble in the future for sure .
Diesel prices soared during desert #1 came down a little, then back up during desert#2 and Have been climbing ever since ...do you think the military uses any diesel ?!?
