Truck Drivers Reduce Speed To Cut Fuel Costs

With fuel costs squeezing trucking companies tighter than ever, some truck companies are slowing down to save money.

Business First of Columbus reports on a trucking company that reset their truck’s onboard computers to 62 miles per hour. Shaving off a few miles from their truck’s top speed could save the company over $750,000.

Trying to control fuel costs is vital if consumers are to be spared higher shipping prices.

As trucking companies are finding ways to save, truck manufacturers are striving to build more fuel efficient and aerodynamic trucks.
