Truckers are once again protesting the high cost of fuel. Last month, many of them tried to drive home the point to congress, Thursday some are doing it again.
This time it's on a local level. More than a dozen drivers parked their big rigs in Vanceboro to send a message to lawmakers about the high cost of diesel fuel.
They say they're losing profits and emptying their wallets to fill up their tanks.
Levis Lane has been a truck driver for almost 30 years and he says this is the worst he's ever seen.
Levis says he spends more than eight hundred dollars filling up his tank. Other drivers tell us they've spent as much as 12 hundred dollars on diesel fuel.
