FOX Business host Mike Rowe argued American truckers are not buying the “Putin price hike” narrative as diesel prices surge to an all-time high amid rampant inflation. Rowe explained how American consumers are impacted by inflation on “Fox & Friends” while also previewing the new season of “How America Works,” premiering Monday night on FOX Business.
