    I am not trying to create a political post here. I just wonder what y'all think is gonna happen to the gas industry, and more specifically, the fuel hauling industry in the coming years with the new regime taking over. I drive fuel tanker, so this is really important to me.

    Haven't we had "the other regime" in power like 4 years ago? I kept fueling my car regardless.

    People will need fuel.
    Houses will need propane or natural gas by truck ( certain areas )
    Planes will need jet fuel.
    Semis will need diesel.

    No change.

    Considering the new T680E only has a range of 150 miles I don't think you have anything to worry about in the next 10-15 years.

    Think about how massive the scale of upgrades to the electrical grid that will be needed in order to facilitate a complete changeover to electricity? How many additional power plants will be required?

    Eventually we'll move away from oil and gas but I don't see it happening for many years.

    I don't see much change coming. I've been around tankers and fuel hauling since the early seventies and other than a few bogus fuel shortages created by the oil companies not much ever changes.
    Thanks for not letting this thread become political.
