On this week’s Drilling Deep, Michael Lemke talks about the mental strain on drivers who are keeping the U.S. supply chain afloat during the pandemic. 

Lemke is a professor at the University of Houston-Downtown and he is a former driver. So he’s studied the profession from the inside and the outside. The pandemic has put a whole different sort of strain on those behind the wheel, and Lemke joins Drilling Deep to talk about it. 

Also on Drilling Deep, host John Kingston discusses why the price of oil, though trending higher gradually since early June, may have reached a high point for now. There are lots of things that are suggesting prices may be trending lower.
