Truckers Protest Fuel Prices Capitol Hill

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fewer than 20 truckers showed up in Washington to protest fuel prices, with organizers blaming the expensive cost of travel for the low turnout. Members of Truckers and Citizens United drove their tractor-trailers from FedEx Field in suburban Maryland to Capitol Hill for Tuesday's rally. To express their frustration, the truckers blared their horns and taped signs to their trucks reading: "America is going broke because of oil." Organizers said Monday they expected more than 200 truckers to participate in the rally. Truckers say the hauling industry has been hit hard as drivers pay nearly double than in recent years to fill up their rigs. In turn, they say consumers pay more for the products they deliver. Participants are asking Congress to approve measures to bring down gas prices. Full Story Here
