Drilling Deep: Getting that relief money from Washington into the right hands

On this week’s Drilling Deep, host John Kingston heard from Jack Rybicki, a managing principal at the accounting and consulting firm CLA. 

Jack has been steering many clients through the process of trying to get money from the federal government under the CARES Act — in particular, the Payroll Protection Program that will allow employees to be retained and a lot of the bills to be paid. It’s good for firms of fewer than 500 people; it’s good for an independent owner-operator..

John will also talk about numbers from the diesel market that help confirm that not only is the trucking market weak but based on diesel demand, it’s historically weak. The numbers don’t lie.
