This article discusses the protest that was staged by some independent truckers on April 1. The truckers are hoping Pres. Bush will use the nation's oil reserves to help combat the rising price of diesel and hopefully influence some companies to pay more per mile. Though it was a small protest, some of the shippers chose not to send goods because they feared truckers who worked would be retaliated against. There are no articles about a continuing strike today or another strike being organized for a future date - yet. One wonders if any changes will come from this strike. Will the government help out the struggling truckers? Should the government step in and use the nation's oil reserves? Will there be more protests? How high will the price of food go as truckers protest more and shipments aren't delivered? Will there be any effect on food from these few hours of strike on April 1?
