Independent Truck Drivers Are Ready To Strike

I just heard about this tonight

Y'all might want to stock up on some food, just to be safe.

From KSLA Shreveport:

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.

This bears watching.
