Truckers are finally talking about striking, shutting down for a week. I support them. Truckers ‘going broke’ and threatening to strike / QCTimes.com

I'm not sure if thats enough to wake up the gas companies, and our government as well, but if it happens I will support them by not driving the diesel (won't need to buy gas for it then) while they are striking. I really feel for those guys. They are getting the shaft.

I agree with all of them and you,really is a sad story.I wont be driving mine if they strike thats for sure.If they are going broke anyway then they should just hang the keys up for a while,I would.What a bummer.

I don't know if it will do much good, the minute the trucks stop, all the gas stations will run their prices through the roof till they run out. The gorcery stores will be a mess and the politicians in charge won't care as they do now. What we need to do is adjust the prices of products going to OPEC nations. That $22 million fighter jet now costs $44 million. If those nations want to raise their prices we need to do the same back to them.
