AAA says we are paying an average of $3.45 a gallon for gas, which is a lot higher than the national average of $3.28. And, prices are expected to go up even higher this summer.
If it's costing you an arm and a leg to fill up these days, imagine what long haul truckers are going through.
Diesel is costing them so much, some of them are having to park their trucks and stay home.
Over the last four years, the price of diesel has doubled. It's now over $4.00 a gallon in some places in the country.
The nation's owner-operators, the self-employed drivers who hail all we consumer are suffering, and the high fuel prices will be passed along to the consumer who are buying the goods the truckers are hauling.
