More Truckers Are Putting It In "Park"

High gas prices are forcing them to stop in the middle of a haul."I moved the load for $1,800 from Houston to San Diego, and I spent $1,700 in gas," said trucker Rolando Arebalo.

Trucker Rolando Arebalo's gas tank is empty and he is out of money. A tire replacement wiped out his savings account, so he's stranded at a truck stop in campo, just outside San Diego.

He also says he hasn't eaten a meal in two days.

The truck driver is hoping fuel prices drop now that the Memorial Day holiday is over.
