I want to know why is the price of fuel up ? Is this not hurting any of the sall companies and owne operators. The past month I've had to take extra money just to get a load to its destanation paying $4.19 agallon to go 850 miles only getting advance for 50% of what the loads paying and of course that takes yu back to the roker who are only wanting topay $1.35 to $1.60 a mile come on how do they expect o/o and small companies to do this ? It's like there is no fuel surcharge on these loads I haul reefer and running the unit constantly eats that up quick when you don't get enough of the load,Cheap freight high Fuel can there not be something done,I don't even hear any chatter about this Someone let me know what you've heard or how you feel

The industry should stick together on pricing,and maybe take one large broker CH,TQL etc and refuse to haul for them for a given month anything less than $2 per mile. It would not take 3 or 4 months for the message to get out. Could you imagine the fear in a big shipper knowing their month could be next.
