Diesel Fuel Increases

I watched the 6pm report tonight about the increase in diesel fuel and it's effects on the economy. The news cast had two tow truck operators and the effects on their costs. I own an 18 wheeler hauling logs with it and I don't get 10 miles per gallon like the tow trucks do I get 5.4 miles per gallon. This puts my cost per mile near 66 cents. Half of my overall cost is in diesel fuel were only 3 years ago it was 25% or less of this.

                                                                                      Thanks for the great reports everynight
