Truly interesting that the price of used trucks has skyrocketed. Primarily because of the shortage of trips to put in the newer trucks. But I think once again it underlines the fact that we allowed our dependency on chip manufacturing which started in this country to be outsourced to foreign governments and foreign companies. We As Americans should keep certain industries here so that we don’t have forced shortages like the availability of Class 8 trucks.
