Gas Shortage Ripples Through The Trucking Industry And Unfueled Drivers

Gas Shortage Ripples Through The Trucking Industry And Unfueled Drivers

As it turns out, the whole snafu that occurred from the Colonial Pipeline has affected the United States where no other disaster as really truly affected it like before. With gas. There happens to be a surge in demand amongst all truck drivers of fuel. However, there still stands the fact that the trucking industry has seen many absentees since the big COVID-19 Pandemic broke out stateside.

Life is pretty nuts like this. Some CEOs of trucking associations, like this guy, had something to say : “When you’ve got a disruption like this, which is thankfully rare, you add the uncertainty and all that gets exacerbated.”

It’s just not going to be easy for Gas.

Nowadays, there’s a real surge in demand when it comes to fuel truck drivers who can barely keep up.

Local truck CEOs have said that “when you’ve got a disruption like this, which is thankfully rare, you add the uncertainty and all that gets exacerbated.”

Of course, that’s to say we’re looking at a major shortage of owner-operators. This may be because of the Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse. But we can’t be so grabby towards opportunity anyway. I mean, think about qualified drivers having to service the fuel and petroleum sectors. Wouldn’t they have it tougher?

Certain drivers have to uphold actually good safety records in order for their experience to be likely considered as a benefit.

Since the COVID shutdown started, plenty of tank truck drivers have to drive far in order to locate fuel at loading racks. That is, before driving back to certain service areas. Rarely do they have state and feds alike giving drivers the benefit of the doubt.

As one of these area owner-operator logistics aficionados have said, “that really strains that capacity that the fleets have and that the drivers have because they have limited hours of availability and they need their rest too.” Only time will tell how much gas we have left in our tank.
