This is my 5th fill up since Monday. Each truck. I have a feeling its gonna get worse. The rates are not adjusting as quick either. Its starting to really squeeze me dry.

That should roll into your billing cost it’s part of owning a business
Not easy when it changes $.50 week. If ur not in trucking u have no clue. Been doin it 30 years, not my first rodeo. Just no reason for it. Nobody….i mean nobody wants it

And yes I just buy rates we all do that’s why you guys are paying more for groceries and everything else…… You are welcome👍

If you were still in Cali that fill up would have been about $1100.00


Just saying.....

You’d be dropping a cool G for 218 gallons in California. I cringe just filling up my 35 gallon tank on my F350 these days because Brandon is a fucking moron!! #FJB

Is there anyway to hedge your fuel costs by contract pricing with a distributor?

I use a app. Those fuel cards are a joke. I use an app called mudflap. I started last august and saved almost $7k in 2021. Only works on diesel. I run midwest & south east which seems to be where most of their locations are. The one i circled in OK is cheapest anywhere. I drive by it once a week. You can see how many there are. You link it to your bank acct and just tap a button on your phone to fill up at that location. Best thing I’ve found to curb the cost

Few months ago I saved $.68 per gallon from the posted price at a station in IL. It was crazy!!

I thought you were still running transfer trucks down in Texas. Are you doing long haul stuff now?
