In this episode of the Energy Show with REI Energy, host Mike Mauceli discusses the potential impact of green policies on the trucking industry with guest Louie Pugh, Executive Vice President of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association. The conversation highlights concerns regarding the Biden administration's environmental initiatives targeting long-haul truckers and the broader implications for the industry and national supply chain.

Mauceli and Pugh explore the practical challenges of transitioning to electric trucks, including the cost, infrastructure, and physical limitations of electric vehicles compared to diesel trucks. The discussion also touches on the broader economic impacts, regulatory issues, and the importance of practical, common-sense approaches to environmental policy. Additionally, they address concerns about the existing electric vehicle market and the readiness of the country's infrastructure to support a massive shift to electric trucking.

    I lost over $70k when everything started to tank. Not because I was in an exchange that went belly up. I was just stupid to hold and because that’s what everyone said. I’m still responsible. It just taught me to be a better investor now that I understand more of what could go wrong. It took me over two years of being in the market, I’m really grateful I found one source to recover my money, at least $10k profits weekly. Thanks Kathleen Chandler

    One of man’s Great failings is to appreciate the Power of oil. The waste via wars is outrageous and disgusting. These 18 wheeler trucks provide lots of jobs but only get 6-8 miles per gallon and worse in mountains. .Trains are BY FAR much more efficient but early on the oil companies (Rockefellers) bought up public transportation and destroyed it. Chevron bought up battery technology. So we are stuck with fewer RR lines, more inefficient trucks and when oil jumps up in price, INFLATION is triggered and the korporatocy takes advantage.

      “So we are stuck with fewer RR lines, more inefficient trucks and when oil jumps up in price, INFLATION is triggered and the korporatocy takes advantage.”

      Don’t blame oil for the current inflated price.
      Blame Biden’s war against petroleum energy production in the US.

      In addition, the commodities market has a major play in oil prices.

      “These 18 wheeler trucks provide lots of jobs but only get 6-8 miles per gallon”

      You didn’t watch the video.
      The expert said they get 5 miles per gallon as a result of EPA regulations that were passed after 2007.

    In Salt Lake City a company was going to get electric trucks they applied for a permit to put in Chargers they were denied the permit because the local grid cannot handle the power consumption of the Chargers they were going to put in I believe 9 Chargers would have taken the same power as seven city blocks if I’m not mistaken

    Edison motors is doing some interesting things with hybrids, but running purely off of batteries is woefully inadequate.
