    This week

    Gasoline went up $0.16 to $1.89

    Diesel went down $0.10 to $2.09

    Thats is as close of a price difference between gas and diesel that we have had in a long time

    Was wondering if Russ could explain this :D

    tymusicits all part of the "game". Last summer I did a fair bit of trucking, my customers were paying more for fuel in the shipment than I was. My fuel was capped. Now depending what vehicle I use , the same shipment/customers there would be no or very littlesurchage. Who woulda thunk it;. Last year plowing fuel prices were through the roof , this year ya look at the money saved especially in thefirst part and it helped pay for the wages on the truck. The oil companies will always make ya pay what the economy will bear. :realmad: But watch out Mr Oil Patch cuz someday someones gonna post a picture of their new ELECTRIC or Hydrogen Power Truck:gunsfiring:
