  • Truckers to protest high price of fuel starting today.

    Can't say that I blame them. In fact, I'd like to see them shut down until something is done about this.

    Truck Drivers Putting the Brakes on Gas Prices

    Reported by: KPLC Staff

    Truck drivers hit the brakes over high gas prices today.

    Tractor trailers across the country are expected to sit idle today, to protest gas prices.

    Others will clog traffic, as truckers drive very slowly to show their support of the shutdown.

    Drivers hit the road already in Pennsylvania's state capitol to protest the pain they're feeling at the pump.

    7News will have more later today on how it's impacting local drivers and gas stations.

          Perhaps they could work on cold fusion or turning lead into gold when they're done with this project.

              If they were to sit out a few weeks or months, they could force the government to get truly serious with that type of research and development.

                Well, once they start slowing down traffic, they won't have near the people on their side as they would have otherwise...

                  I agree with you on this. I'd rather they just idle their trucks for as long as it takes.

                          Well, let's see...after they get fired and replaced by Mexicans, they will have a lot of time to write letters and call their local legislators.

                              Yeah, the Teamsters are going to allow that to happen.

                              We haven't had any good riots lately.
