    I do remember that time very well. I made some of my best money in trucking. If you run a fuel efficient truck, get a National average fuel surcharge, and are in a program that good discounts at the pump you should be making MORE money when fuel goes up. I know it’s a hard concept to wrap your head around but it’s true. I filled up last week and with our fuel discount on one fill up I got $98,56 off the pump price , on average at the current prices my discount alone is $367.78.

    If you are leased onto a company that has steady contract customers that fuel surcharges are a part of the agreement you probably can make money irregardless of the price of fuel.

    If you are on the spot Market where it's just an all in price, probably not so much.

    True. But it’s them just narrowing the gap on us a little. Those contracts pay low to start with.
