Here’s news of a planned truck convoy next Monday to DC…It’s leaving at 5am from a restaurant in Lebanon County, east of Harrisburg. It’s great to see someone take a stand against high gas prices, but as I’ve said before, I don’t see it making a big difference.

If gas prices really really upset people, they would base their votes on it in this election. But we are fairly well schooled to think that our votes, our politics, make no impact on the economy. This survey seems to confirm that. Until people decide otherwise – or buy smaller cars en masse – they will be nothing more than a nuisance to oil companies and oil-producing nations.

This blog has gotten a few hits from people looking up information about a national truck stoppage, apparently scheduled for April 3. The stoppage is supposed to raise concerns over the rising price of diesel fuel. As a service to those readers, I’m posting this article and this article about a rally today in downtown Harrisburg on the same issue. The second one even has some video.

The hits, I think, come from my recent post about a sign on Route 30 that regularly offers chilling scenarios that would result if trucks were to stop. I’ll start posting some pictures as soon as I can take them.
