    More like 4.00 fuel not 3.00-3.50

    As long as the rates don't drop too much it's still plenty profitable when your running smart

    Everything that is happening now happened right before the 2008 crash. At some point soon it’s coming again.
    Once the consumers start cutting back on their purchases the end of good rates will follow. The bidding wars between the desperate, in over their heads “O/O’s” will be epic.

    Question is, who’s wasting their money on lights and chrome instead of saving money for a rainy year or two?

    I was thinking the late 70's & early 80's yes .. but I grew up in the agriculture part it seemed like that part suffered more .. the 1st truck I bought was a 1981 lightly used 359 that had 90k miles that a guy turned back in to Associates Financial Group. In Feb of 1982 because he couldn't make the payments.. my payments on that truck were 1456.00 per mth for 5 yrs. the interest rate was 15.3 % I thought that was cheap compared to the 18 & 20% on some loans

    #### Canada. Insignificant country with stupid laws and very few urban stupid people. Who would willingly live there outside first nations people, and french Canadians? I mean, 110kph? In a country with only 1 road, and most of it doesn't have people? Yeah, high fuel prices, high taxes, stupid laws, and no significance in the world. Nice oil, we should take it

    The only people who pay pilot sticker price are those rv idiots who want to come to truck stop and hog a semi pump to pump 45 gallons.
