Hanging On

I would like to add John Simourian''s name to run for president of the United States. Everything he mentioned in his letter in the July 14 Traffic World is absolutely true, right down to curving Iran''s ambitions.

I own a trucking company of 20 tractors in the Northeast, and like everyone else in my shoes, we are just barely hanging on.

Because of the price of fuel, many trucking companies have closed their doors. One in particular was Jevic Transportation, which was a shock to the industry.
