ATSSA president contacts DOT leaders amid soaring fuel costs and record inflation

ATSSA President & CEO Stacy Tetschner contacted the leaders of every state’s department of transportation (DOT) requesting contract price adjustments for ATSSA members in light of the rapid increase in fuel costs, significant inflation and the volatility of the situation.

“We strongly encourage you to consider immediate action to help remediate the effects of the recent and rapid increase in fuel costs across the country, most specifically as it affects the roadway industry, where roadway projects that were bid months ago are now being awarded and businesses are experiencing losses due to inflationary operational costs,” Tetschner wrote in the April 8 letter.

Tetschner notes that inflation “is at a four-decade high and gas prices continue to increase,” having increased 45% over this time one year ago.

He also notes the importance of roadway safety work as fatalities increase.

“We are amid a crisis in traffic fatalities according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and we want to ensure that much needed roadway safety improvement projects are not put at risk,” he states in the letter.
