    Let’s see, at an average of $ 3.91 per gallon for diesel fuel, what will be my cost per mile figure to operate my truck ?
    Truck payment.
    Maintenance and upkeep.
    FUEL !

    And on and on it goes

    All I can say is, you better be getting big $ for transporting freight if you are intending to make a profit out there these days.
