Independent U.S. Truckers Strike - Truckers to Strike Over Record Diesel Prices, Some Paying Up to $1,200 to Fill-Up - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

Independent U.S. truckers are planning to stop hauling freight Tuesday in protest of record-high diesel prices that drivers say they can no longer afford.

Independent truckers, who constitute 90 percent of the nation's trucking fleet, are being hit especially hard by soaring diesel prices and compensation lags far behind rising costs, according to the American Trucking Association.

Re: Independent U.S. Truckers Strike

If only it would have been organized and all the truckers did it. This little PR campaign won't do much of anything....not to mention their intent is to get oil freed up from the reserve. Not the problem...but hey, I guess it can be a start.

The other problem is, the only way this would have any real affect on getting politicians off their dead asses would be for an extended strike...not a couple hours, or a slow down, or a single day. Make it a week(s)...then the gov't would go ape****. Problem with that, the truckers can't afford not to they are stuck.
