A new record has been set for national truck stop retail diesel at $5.28/gallon ($.81/mile).
An owner-operator doing 7000 miles per month and getting 6.5 MPG would have seen their fuel bill jump $1800/month since the start of the year.
This staggering price for diesel fuel will result in massive price increases for . . . . everything . . . because literally E V E R Y T H I N G, except electricity and natural gas, MUST, at some point, be transported by truck.
If you think prices for food are high now, just wait until these record-breaking diesel fuel costs are factored-in.
