Should I jump into trucking and quit my solid job now as a recession looms?

Hello All, I'd like your thoughts on my dilemma. I have a solid job, however there are risks involved with staying. So after several decades I got my CDL and have interviews for local and regional truck driving jobs. I'm seeing though where owner operators are losing their trucks because with Diesel they can't make a go of it. I hear adds all the time for drivers right now. My question is, will owner operators start driving as employees, and soon with supply chain issues and a lack of loads, say a few months down the road, will there now be so many drivers that new truckers with less experience won't get hired? If we have a food shortage as they are all clamoring about, and we only have 60% of the food for example, would that eliminate the need for 40% of the drivers needed to haul food? With they jump to other products being shipped and now truckers aren't seeing $5,000 sign on bonuses, they're being laid off. I know no one has a crystal ball, but sincere thoughts are appreciated.
