The Trucker: An Endangered Species? — Carectomy - Removing Cars from People

The Trucker: An Endangered Species?

by Kate Trainor on April 10, 2008

Truckers The Trucker: An Endangered Species?
Will America’s truckers say so long to sleeping in cozy cabs in the dim light of the Wal-Mart parking lot, cuddled beside a lukewarm can of Schlitz? That’s the threat that some disgruntled truckers have recently brought to the table, given the price of diesel is now around $4 a gallon. Talk of a nationwide strike by truckers has been traveling the Interstate, as has word that truckers are rigging up a plan to revolt.

A few greasy renegades have already staged rallies to protest rising fuel costs. In Pennsylvania, truckers gathered at the Capitol to request that local legislators lessen in-state taxes on fuel. Throughout the U.S., there are murmurs of a day-long, nation-wide boycott by truckers to call attention to their woeful tale. Truckers are also begging President Bush to back their pleas for lower taxes and a break on fuel cost by tapping into the nation’s oil reserves.

There may be a bright side to rising fuel costs that most Americans can’t yet see. If truckers get a collective carectomy, maybe the average car commuters are next in line.
