Fuel Prices are Still to High for Most Truckers

Even though the price of a barrel of oil has gone down it hasn't changed prices much at the pump. We are told that the reason for this is because the price at the pump now is a reflection of the higher oil prices over the last 6 months. It takes time for cheaper oil prices to affect pump prices since gasoline is bought months in advance. Maybe we will see lower prices right before the election - that would not be a surprise.
With fuel prices still high you will still see lots of used semis and used tractor trailer rigs for sale online and on the side of the road. So now is the time to buy that used semi you've been thinking about before fuel prices drop - because then heavy truck prices will go back up. Or maybe you are considering going into a different type of business that involves using heavy equipment.
Whatever you are looking for you are sure to find it at Used Heavy Equipment.
