The high cost of gasoline and diesel doesn’t only affect Missourians with cars – it’s affecting truckers, and that could lead to costs being passed on to consumers. Glenn Brown is Chairman & CEO of Contract Freighters Incorporated (CFI) – a Joplin-based trucking company. He says his company and other trucking firms are already adding fuel surcharges to loads they’re carrying, so this is an area of concern because the trucking companies’ customers will, in turn, pass along the higher costs to their own customers. Eventually, the consumer pays at the grocery or department store. Brown says despite the fuel surcharge that is tied to the cost of fuel, CFI and other trucking companies are still taking a hit because of the higher pump prices.
