Truckers park rigs to protest gas prices

Gas prices have some truckers feeling helpless. In Screven, Georgia, a group of truckers are taking some drastic measures. It’s not a rest area or a campground, but along Highway 84 in Screven, you’ll find some truckers and their families. Ron White says, “I’m telling you, everything is getting so expensive.”

“I don’t know where I’m going from here,” says Eddie Hudson. For most of his life Hudson has been a contract log hauler. He says he remembers the good old days when fuel prices were reasonable. “You can spend from $400 to $600 of fuel to haul 18 to 20 loads.” SOURCE
