More than a dozen Maine truckers are on their way to Washington, DC, to protest the high price of diesel fuel.
The truckers will join a national demonstration on Monday.
Maine Congressman Tom Allen hitched a ride with one of the Maine truckers…he plans to take part in the protest.
The maine truckers say diesel prices as high as $4.48 a gallon are crushing the state’s forest products industry.
Allen says he’s also frustrated by the situation that he says has allowed ":big oil": to generate record profits while hardworking truckers suffer.
