    Yup. My thoughts too. CDL life is great in reporting shock horror, terrible on educated industry viewpoints.

    That’s what gets the page clicks
    Every news network and nearly every web site exists for one reason and one reason only .
    To make as much money as possible.
    This site included , since it’s covered with ads from trucking companies begging for drivers to replace the ones that lost because they treated them like garbage .

    that’s why every story is hyped up
    That’s why the reporters in the weather Channel paddle a canoe while people walk by in the background in ankle deep water

    Or stand in a ditch, to make the flood look more dramatic . Thus getting more clicks and views and more
    Money from Google ads

    Lol

    i remember when diesel went over a buck a gallon for the first time .
    I thought about selling my rig because I couldn’t imagine any way to make a profit with fuel so expensive …

    and there’s no trucks in Europe where diesel is super expensive because if they taxes they add on .

    I remember 15 years ago when truckers were up in arms when diesel prices went up to $3.00 dollars a gallon! There was talk then about shutting down the country. Naturally that didn’t happen. Some O/Os figured out they could compensate by increasing their fuel surcharge.lol
