Cost of Trucking

Thought this was interesting. Calling the tractor unit a "cab" is misleading - like calling a gun "bullet." The cab is a component of the tractor unit. But that's nitpicking. Oh, and I don't contribute much to the coffee consumption. I'm an iced tea guy.

Edited to add:

Samuel Barradas of The Trucker's Report contacted me to let me know I didn't attribute the origin of this graphic - something I couldn't find originally. He asked me to post this link as well, to point to his site, which of course I am doing!

And I remember when Diesel was selling for less than regular gas, around 20 cents/gallon.
Now it's up there with premium gas!

When you continue to crunch the numbers, you find that almost $10,000 is confiscated in fuel taxes alone. And some politicians are bitching about profits. I don't know what else these taxing entities can call getting paid for doing nothing.
