Filmmaker Chris Hume heads to Pennsylvania on Day 10 of Red State Road Trip part 2. He talks to truckers who are paying upwards of $1,000 to fill their tanks while oil companies like Exxon reap massive profits. In 2007 the oil company earned a record profit of $40 billion and profits in 2009 are expected to double. As one of the truckers says, "someone’s playing around with the prices."
And arson is on the rise. Homeowners are burning their homes. Hume talks to Joe Toscano, an arson investigator about why the economic perfect storm is about more than just the foreclosure issue. Red State Road Trip is a Shoot and Run Productions. More episodes can be seen online at shootandrunproductions.com.
