Independent Truckers not driving on the First of April--- for real.
April 1, 2008 3:59am CST
I have been hearing on NPR that there is going to be an independent trucking boycott... They are apparently going to pull over Tuesday and not drive due to their huge disel fuel costs... Wondering if you think that the independent truckers will have any success in getting help from Congress or anyone else in their time of need? It is unlikely that there failure to make deliveries on Tuesday will affect us much at the supermarket but some businesses may suffer for it. Do you support their protest?

Wondering what your thoughts are about this as the independent truckers deliver a lot of the things to the stores and are paying more for disel and making so little money that many are going out of business... And we ourselves are suffering at the pump too... Wondering if we supported them, if we would have a better chance in getting the gas prices down for us too?
