Truck purchases: an indicator of things to come?

Month to month orders for new class 8 tractors fell 36% – a sign that trucking companies are not as excited as they once were.  Considering that carriers have ordered 468,600 trucks in 11 months this year – up 81% from last year, the world is far from coming to an end!
 
Oil prices are down below $50.  Consider that an early Christmas present!
 
Next Tuesday is a holiday – please enjoy it!
