What Is The Price Of Gas Filling Up A Semi Truck?
When we fill up our tanks, the simplest method to determine how much fuel costs is to just glance at the per-gallon pricing.
According to AAA, the national average price for a gallon of ordinary gasoline as of
Thursday was $4,236 and the national average for a gallon of diesel was $5,053.
Because semi trucks only get an average of 5.6 miles per gallon (mpg), drivers must carry a lot of gasoline.
If tanks are 300 gallons in total and have an average fuel efficiency of 7 miles per gallon,
semi trucks may travel 2,100 miles on a single tank of diesel (often not gasoline).
If petrol cost $4 per gallon on average and you possessed a vehicle with a 50-gallon fuel tank,
you would spend $200 filling that tank before turning those keys. While the truck's MPG directly affects
the vehicle, other elements like speed and cargo have a big impact on price per mile.
