Be prepared to pay more at the pump this summer.
Experts are now predicting a fuel shortage is on the way – not because of a supply issue, but rather not enough tanker truck drivers to move the fuel to gas stations.
According to CNN, about 25% of tankers aren’t being used right now because there aren’t enough qualified drivers available.
Insiders expect the national average could top $3 a gallon.
There's not a looming shortage of crude oil or gasoline. But there's a shortage in tanker truck drivers needed to deliver the gas to stations who are in short supply. https://t.co/nDkPcxtf4R— CNN (@CNN) April 27, 2021
