    new truck tops 9 mpg

    Daimler Says New Cascadia Tops 9 MPG in Road Trials
    OXON HILL, Md. โ€” Daimler Trucks North America unveiled what will become its primary over-the-road heavy-duty tractor next year and said the new model โ€” named the Cascadia Evolution โ€” will be about 7% more fuel-efficient than its 2010 model.

    As truckers continue updating their fleets with newer and more fuel efficient trucks, I suppose this means TA may be selling slightly less fuel? Over a period of several years, the cumulative impact of improving fuel mpg may weigh on total gallons sold? TA may be able to increase their margins though to offset any lower gallons sold?
