There's No More Diesel Left Time To Panic. The United States of America uses 128 million gallons of diesel fuel per day or just over 3 million barrels. Experts are telling us we have only enough to cover the next 25 days. How did this happen? How much trouble are we really in?
Blame is being cast on the Russian/Ukraine war and of course the past couple years worth of covid problems. These two issues alone have hurt the world supply chain and its not getting better fast enough. Last year alone we consumed over 1.1 billion barrels of fuel and we are on track for another billion plus. Tune into this weeks podcast and hear our take on this.
A new trend in the trucking industry
Truck drivers are using carriers to catch a ride to a destination they need to reach. The new scam goes like this. A driver gets hired in some distant city in the country. The new carrier does not offer a free ride to orientation. They tell the driver, he needs to fine his own way to his new job. The driver then applies with another carrier in the same area of the desired carrier. Once approved by the second carrier, the driver is offered a plane ticket to come to the new companies orientation. Once the driver lands in that city, he calls the original carrier and goes to work. Meanwhile screwing the new carrier that paid for his plane ticket.
Carriers are fighting back. Some carriers are now reporting a driver to DAC or other agencies for "theft by deception of company funds". Meaning they now have to explain to any future companies why a carrier has put them down as a thief on record. This of course will hinder a driver from future jobs.
