    I've seen everything from 50k to over 100k. I'd consider 80k pretty good.

    I made right at $70k this year. Home daily, take truck home daily also. Work 5 day weeks. This is East Texas, I can keep my bills paid and I really like the job. Great company, feel appreciated, not looking for a change! I recommend it

    Glad to see local fuel hauling is remaining steady in most areas. Still hauling milk over here in my area and the company decided to stop picking up local dairies and do strictly regional. The NM to CO runs I was doing earlier this year are alright(I've handled snow here in NM and up in CO before, it's not as horrific as the northeast or the PNW). But I feel I've scraped the pay ceiling in this and I'm lucky to be hitting $50,000/year before fighter jet money is deducted. So these incremental offers of $20k-$30k more seem quite worth making the jump. Of course being as cautious as I've been with everything going on, the only thing that stops me is the possibility of having to some "Training Day" double-up stuff in a tiny day-cab for 10-12 hours a night(when I trained to load milk tankers, the trainee just followed the trainer out in another truck to the dairy to watch and learn).

    That Sun/Mon off seems to be a favorite with most local companies though. Of course with caution being practiced by most and many places being closed anyways, those days are pretty much the same as all others.

    That sounds pretty decent. I like that schedule also. Gives you Sunday to watch football, and Monday to do things like dmv. 80k is about average I’d say depending on where you live.
