3-30-05 – High gas prices are costing independent truck drivers more money to fill up. In some cases, even more than they are paid to move freight. As a result, many are planning to strike, but it is a move some say will only cost them more.
Since most drivers are independent, a strike may be too much to afford. They feel they have to do something because if prices continue to go up and nothing changes, they will be out of a job.
The strike will begin this Sunday, when drivers will not move their trucks for three days.
