Independent Truck Drivers Are Ready To Strike

Rumors of a possible truck driver strike are speeding up around the country and here in the Ark-La-Tex.
The word at truck stops around Shreveport is that at midnight Tuesday morning, independent truck drivers will park their rigs and hit the picket line.
Many of the drivers we spoke with say diesel fuel prices are so outrageous they're hardly able to turn a profit.
Many drivers believe if the strike is successful, it could bring the country to a halt in a matter of days.
Truck Driver Gene Hobson said, "Everything to the consumer is hauled on a truck an average to five times between raw materials and finished product."
There is no centralized organizer for the strike. Word is being passed to truckers CB to CB.
