Many of us dont think about how the basic food staples get to our table. It all starts with farmers, who work the land. And now economists say theyre a dying breed. With gas prices delivering the final knock out punch. We all cringe when it costs 60 dollars to fill up the tank. But imagine spending two thousand dollars a day on gas. Well thats what some farmers have to deal with -- and eventually, its just too much. Its what his great grandfather, grandfather and father did...spend every day of the year, sun-soaked, working the land. Bo Skipper has been farming since age 18. Now the craft that is his livelihood -- is suffering from diesel gas prices, that have doubled in the past year. Skipper says at the end of each harvest, he barely breaks even. A story economists say, is too familiar for many small farmers across Louisiana.
