10-4-06 - Gas prices may be dropping, but local truckers say the fallout is still cutting into their profits.
From large manufactures like atlas roofing to smaller ones like the Oklahoma Ferrier Supply, production has dropped significantly in southern Oklahoma over the past year. They blame the high gas prices for that.
Folks were paying more to fill up and spending less at the store. While gas prices have dropped, production hasn't recovered, and manufacturers say it may be awhile before it does.
Large trucking companies that have dedicated accounts are not affected as much. It's the independent truckers that are taking a hit.
