Oilfield truck drivers earn a competitive annual wage ranging between $23 to $30 or more per hour, a rate significantly higher than the standard salary for an over the road driver. Truck drivers in the oil and gas industry also frequently put in a substantial amount of overtime, which also raises their wages considerably. Some drivers that haul water and crude oil for the oil industry are paid a percentage of what they haul.
Although some positions may offer benefits, many do not. Some companies offer housing in the form of travel trailers for a nominal fee.
