Ok I have been driving for about a year now and I have been try I got finish my college degree while on the road.

So I am writing a paper for my social economics class and hear it towards the trucking industry. My question is : As an owner operator who own his / her truckoutright how much on average do you make? What is your monthy operating costs like insurance, taxes, and any other applicable fees.

What is the average you make per mile and if you lease your truck to a company what do you make per mile average?

Tba is in advance for the help.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

My email has changed since I first registered with this site so not sure if Brett sent your email to there or not. Would really enjoy any information you could share.

Sorry Brett I didn't know it was against the rules of the site to discuss this topic.
