I'm going to raise my prices before it gets here! What a fair amount for the increase? My guess is 5 to 7 bucks per client! Are you guys going to do the same?:dizzy:

Im going to use the fuel surcharge and charge accordingly to the price that week. If it goes back down (which I think we have seen the last of under 3 bucks a gallon) I will take it off. Im looking for it to get closer to 4 bucks a gallon. It jumped today another dime today:cry: Greedy **** SOBs

Get use to higher fuel cost and pass themm all on. That includs the cost to heat the shop and HOME, Yes your home unless your not in this to make a living. everything is going to cost more because of fuel, so pass it on

Fullthrottle, I know exactly how much gas I use on every yard from my truck to the mower and weedeaters. If the yard takes me 3 gallons of gas, anything over 2 bucks a gallon I will factor that in. If its 3 bucks a gallon instead of 2 then the increase will be 3 bucks. If it goes to 4 a gallon then it will be 6 more. Anyone that does not like it can cut get someone else or do it themselves. Im not absorbing that big of a hit.

I''m going up 5.00 per client! I'm going to tell then it's because of the riseing gas and the increase of supplys.

Gas prices are killer around here. I'm already planning to add the surcharge in. I'm not even sure I will wait until summer to include it. It might just start from the beggining of the season! I'm still deciding.....

Well the good thing about this is that everyone is in the same boat the competition doesn't have an advantage. I wonder if there will be a Japanese low-fuel lawn mower coming out soon to grab market share from the "Gas Guzzlers" like Toro, lol.:canadaflag:

Canada is self sufficient in energy, we have more oil than Saudi Arabia (oil sands) but we still get our prices jacked much higher than americans. Right now gas is 99.9 cents a litre. How many litres in a gallon I don't know and I don't want to know.:cry: :canadaflag:

I was talking to one of the managers at a gas station here in town today and she told me it will be around $3.50 this summer.:cry:

That's because your country imposes a lot of TAXES on your fuel. You have to pay for your free health care somehow, ya know.:hammerhead:
