Here's one more casualty of soaring oil prices: Nevada brothels catering to lonely truckers are seeing business plummet. Sky-high diesel prices means that long-haul truckers have less discretionary income, so many brothels are offering promotions to give business a boost. At one establishment, customers get double what they pay for if they use a government stimulus check.
"We're calling it double your stimulus," says brothel owner Dennis Hof. "The brothel industry is having to get more creative just like all consumer products in America."
