Who is parking their truck today?

I am sure everyone here here read the news that the independent trucking industry is parking their trucks in a effort to get the price of fuel down. My truck is in need of a valve body update anyway so I reckon in support if the independent OTR drivers I will park my diesel truck and fix the valve body at the same time. Don't know if this will make a dent in the fuel problem but anything is worth a try. Here is more info:

GENERAL PUBLIC NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH
This rising fuel cost not only affects the Owner Operators. It affects the company driver as well. It also affect the general public and here is how. With the rising cost of fuel, comes higher costs for everyone. Gas and Diesel fuel, food, household goods, clothing, building materials, home décor, automobiles and the parts to repair them. Utility bills, Insurance, Tax, and the list goes on. It effects EVERYTHING around you not just products we need, but services we need also. The things in your life that you enjoy will become unattainable due to cost. Think about our children. What burden are we going to leave with them. This has to stop.
Before we all have to stop because we can’t afford to go on.
Shutdown April 1st. Let’s band together.
UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL

I agree, this won't help.

Mine is sitting in the driveway for the same reason, but it does have fuel. I'm still not going to drive it or buy any fuel this week, just to help the cause.
