something that people need to understand is that the trucking community as a whole is the nations back bone. with out trucks the country stops. i aggree that something needs to be done with the price of oil. we as a country are sitting on the worlds second largest coal deposit and we know that we have oil sitting in alaska. time for someone in congress to tell the tree hugging epa to take a back seat and get this country in some kind of working order

Three cheers for the truckers. Let's ALL get behind them, People. The Bush Administration and the Republicans in general have not given a darn about the American people who pay their salaries. They need to hear loud and clear from Americans who actually work for a living! How about a national strike?
Patti in Maryland,
Have you forgotten that the PRESIDENT DOES NOT make the laws and can't change them by himself... and the last I knew the Congress was made up of BOTH Republicans and DEMOCRATs...

If every TRUCKER and 4 WHEELER (CARs) cross the highways and stopping traffic for 24 hours on May 5th you will hurt the economy enough to get the attention of Congress. But if the "FUEL HAULERS" stopped deliveries for 24 hours the POLITICIANs on both sides, would have no chose but to cap the prices. This would mean NO FUEL for cars, planes, ships, buses etc... Remember the FATCATs on the Hill can't get FATTER if you take away the FUEL...

I don’t know what I could say that already has been said, but this is criminal. Diesel is the first thing that comes out of the refining process and it costs more than premium gasoline. I have parked my diesel in a form of protest (I can’t afford the fuel…ha!). I am about to retire soon and wanted to travel and see this great country of ours before the foreign governments start buying the rights to our roadways and putting toll booths everywhere (the next thing coming down the pike). The way things are going I have bought the means to travel (truck and fine trailer), but will soon like the means (guess I will have to sell at a loss)to accomplish my dreams.



Good on truckers! This country will or had better listen to you or we will have to start growing our own food and making our own clothes (plus other commodities). Thanks for your help!!!

I want to start of by saying that I support the truckers. That said, I also support high gas prices.

I'm wondering why everyone in the trucking industry seems to feel that they can't pass the price increase on. They talk about competition, but their competition also has to pay the higher fuel costs.

If truckers get find the unity to send 300 trucks to DC, they ought to able to raise their prices.

The truck drivers could help if they shut down for 3 days. This would get some attention.
Some people bought an SUV say 4 yrs ago, with the cost of gas, they are having enough trouble buying food, gas and medicine. They don't have enough money to trade cars. Someone said move closer to your job. It's hard to buy and sell a house today, many or most cannot afford it.
Did anyone see BP and Shell profits, for the yr
I think, were recording breaking. So once again the rich guys get all the money.
Well...I am proud of the truckers and I hope they do a real 3 day shut down.
And I agree..."Hats off to the Truckers"!

I think truckers and the Teamsters should all go on strike until gas prices go down. The economy would take a big hit and then people would stand up and take notice. I am tired of paying almost $4 a gallon to line some jerk's pocket, when it doesn't cost all that much to make a gallon of gas! I thought price fixing was illegal. Apparently not.

I hate to see Comrades like you have a weak moment and become distracted by your anger because it appears that our most trusted, narcissistic Comrade Obama has had his toys taken away from him.
I want to make out with Rita Ansley. The President thinks it would be a good Idea if they would date each other first.
Fear not - don't ever think that Comrade Obama has lost any power in fighting for Our Cause of Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America.

Remember, Comrade Obama has surrounded himself with numerous loyal foot soldier Comrades for our Cause - his "Czars" that were appointed by Comrade Obama and can promote policies while circumventing the Congressional approval process. So don't lose hope because of that silly election. Don't you dare take your eye off the ball in fighting for our Cause.

You must continue to work hard to "stay the course" of only relying on select Comrade-run media outlets, and strictly adhere to our groupthink mentality that is created and nurtured by the demagoguery of class envy and racial tension.

Carry on, my most loyal trusted Comrade foot soldier "useful idiot" for our Cause!

I was in the great trucker shutdown of 1973. We shut down at the "Causeway Truck Stop" in Mobile, Al. for 11 days. It proved to us that people can stand up for something they believe in and get noticed. I AM "We The People" and so are you all! It's time we all started to stand up against the injustices we are being subjected to by a Govt. out of control!
God bless those truckers -AND... WHAT'S LEFT OF OUR STILL UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
