Independent Truckers Getting Hit Hard in the Wallet


A lot of attention has been focused on high gas prices. But independent truckers say the cost of diesel fuel is putting a dent in their profits. Independent truckers we talked to said typically they are given an amount to spend before they leave and what's left over after they buy fuel and other items is their pay. That means higher prices at the pump cost the individual trucker more and they profit less.
