“Retiring. Partly because of the fuel prices and partly because I’m fed up with FMCSA and all of the new regulations.”

DON OLSON

“The fuel surcharges I receive help quite a bit. I receive upwards of 60 cents or more per mile. I have older equipment and small payments and can ride it out better than most. My breaking point is about $5.50 to $6 a gallon.”

RANDAL BOUWENS

Newark, N.Y. | Independent (R.O.B. Transport)


“I don’t really have to deal with the prices directly, because I drive for the company, but we’re having a company-wide meeting soon… I assume we might hear something about what it means for our paychecks.”

ED LEBKOSKY

“We’re getting robbed hardcore by the country we work hard to serve.”
