    Ive been hearing that there is a lot of money to be made in the oil fields if you have your own trucks. I am just wondering if anybody knows anything about that and if so what kind of money can a guy make. Also what kind of trailer would a guy want to get.

    Right! and the oilfield is going to go bust, probably after Jan 1. Oil prices are low and below $75/barrel companies won't afford to drill and there will be another crash like in the 80s. Get a real job while you can. Lease on with Mercer or Oakley or ....

    in north dakota winter is where you make most of your money. in spring due to the frost law, you are restricted to 60 barrels of liquid to prevent damage to the roads so your income drastically drops in the spring. last I heard 4k per day is about average for an oil truck tanker running around the clock. Call hoffman trucking in Jamestown North Dakota for more information about leasing your trucks.

    when oil is below $100 a barrel...the proffit on fracking gets very slim..unless oil prices go back up.....oil field fracking will slow down
