Hiring demand for truck drivers has not suffered from the rising gas prices across the U.S. In March, nearly 41,000 jobs were advertised online for this occupation, a 33% increase compared with the same month in 2011. This marks a new four-year high in demand for truck drivers. Recruiters in Chicago placed the highest volume of job ads for drivers during March, increasing more than 30% over the past year in that city. Other locations with the highest number of job ads for truck drivers during March included Dallas, New York, Houston, and Philadelphia.
