Inflation is up 28% in transportation with fuel tires truck trailer expenses.
should the rates follow some add a fuel surcharge that doesn't seem to cover any of the other expenses

fuel in western Nd and Montana is around 3.89. Am sure the oilfield gouging is still in play.

fuel surcharge isn't enough anymore

priced new steers if you can find them Michelin are 875. If you can find them

Just an FYI. Listening to Red Eye Radio, T/A commercial. Advertising Bridgestone Steer tires for under $500.

And I am trying out Hankook tires on my rig. Ride good, seem to wear well. No flats year 3 on the trailer tires, just first year on the drives. Steer tires go on tonight. AL21's up front, DL21's on the drives and TL21's on the trailer. 445/50R22.5 20 ply.

Government usually under reports the real numbers, but eventually the truth becomes known. Most experts agree we are in a bubble and it’s about to pop, the global elites have been pulling out of the markets. From what I can tell Yellen and Powell are totally incompetent, the only options left are keep inflating or default.
