4:35 am
>> just to fill up this truck, i'd say about a year ago was less than, i don't know, about $80 to fill it up, and now it's over 200. >> reporter: the record prices could fuel higher inflation putting more strain on american wallets. that's because diesel is essential to the supply chain. nearly all heavy-duty trucks and nearly all trains use diesel. so do most cargo ships, and with shipping companies now facing the extra cost, consumers can expect to face higher prices on nearly everything. even energy costs could be affected. coal is transported to power plants in diesel-powered trains. diesel engines also power most agricultural equipment, which means prices on those consumer goods could rise gradually but for truckers, the pain is immediate. >> this load for simple, i made that load for $2,300. now i'm doing it for 1,900. >> reporter: in some parts of the country, diesel prices now top $6 per gallon and considering many big rigs only get about six miles to the gallon, some drivers are now paying more than $1 per mile on
