Owner-operators scrutinize bottom lines to avoid belly-up scenarios

As diesel prices continue to soar above the $4 a gallon mark in at least 21 states, some owner-operators have decided to park their rigs at home and wait until economic conditions improve. Others are trying to figure their operating costs down to the penny in order to survive. Kip Hough, assistant supervisor in OOIDA's Member Assistance Department, said his department has taken hundreds of phone calls recently from members who are trying to combat high diesel prices by cutting their operating expenses where they can and by running their businesses "smarter."
