Minnesota farmer says fuel costs are adding up quick

Diesel costs keep mounting for many farmers.

Chris Hill grows corn and soybeans near Brewster in southwest Minnesota and also runs a small trucking firm.

“(One day last week) I think we burned closed to 200-gallons of diesel fuel in three trucks, and that happens almost on a daily occasion out here. So it adds up quick.”

And Hill suggests there’s no relief in sight.

“We need some help on that end, and I don’t know what the answer is for that.”

The national average diesel price is up to $5.72 a gallon according to AAA.
