Of course hotal prices arent reflective of actual inflation either. Nor are rental cars. And few other things on that list.

Overall, Point being, those arent signs of inflation as they are more demand versus supply.

And if you think those are signs of inflation, well, then rates are still cheap. Go bet on that inflation with some purchases.

California ports are jammed up because of California Looney Left policy. Truckers delivering out of California ports can't be owner/operator. They have to be union. Also all trucks have to be newer than 2011. Truckers aren't buying new trucks because California is requiring all trucks to be electric by 2035.

as a former trucker, it was common to refuse loads to CA and NY.
The company I would work for would incetivize you to take a load to/out of CA or NY by offerling like $150 extra for the load. Still wouldn't be worth it.

The amount of time spent sitting and getting in and out of places like those, is just not worth it.

Truckers that are efficient and make good money, have great memories of where/what /who caused them delays. I had a drywall factory out of KY/Cincy area that was ALWAYs a shit show. Appointment for say Noon to pick up, they wouldn't even call you into the warehouse to be loaded until 3:30 or so; then, they would load you too heavy, and you'd have to come back after visiting the scale 15 miles down the road; untarp, get stuff removed; re-tarp/secure.

After about 4 loads from that place, anytime that place showed up on my screen from my dispatcher, I declined the the load unless there was extra $$ for downtime. Once missing my home-time because my clock go so out of wack I had to do a reset while out on the road (I was usually home on weekends for my reset).


the trucking industry, specifically the consignee / pick up / drop off...is a highly efficient machine of inefficiency. The amount of hours spent sitting waiting is incredible. Show up to pick up, adn there's a line of trucks waiting; ....and there's ONE guy in the pickup yard operating a forklift. then...Break time!......he leaves for an hour or so. Meanwhile, 7 trucks sitting there waiting.


But if you're late for a pickup, you get reamed. So, hurry up and get to your appointment time, so you can sit there for 4 hours burning up your clock. And don't even get me started on how truckers are treated at these places (most places in general); treat you like pond scum.

You’re doing an atrocious job of trying to prove any point at all. You’re like a rudderless ship a drift in a sea of feces.

Ok, so let's get that straight....

inflation
[ in-fley-shuhn ]
Economics. a persistent, substantial rise in the general level of prices related to an increase in the volume of money and resulting in the loss of value of currency (opposed to deflation).

Well, I know that inflation isnt prices going up because of supply and demand issues.

That a step ahead of most trumpers.

That inflation is not a problem and was caused by the previous Republican administration if a Democrat is in office.
