to set up a place on this site to check going rates for different services in different parts of the country. Something must go on in the fuel industry like that. Used to be That you could shop fuels and get a dime or two or more difference in price. Not any more it appears. Today, it's pennies to no difference and their prices change in unison.

Why can't we set up a place on lawnsite to do the same. It's not a substitute for actually doing your home work on your business, but it sure as heck could minimize the stupid prices and self inflicted wounds they cause. It might even benefit the consumer and the industry giving us more credibility while forcing the consumers attention off price and on to quality and services, where attention belongs.

Every lawnsite member would have their own service price page to update when they choose. Their data would instantly update a master price list for their state or geographic region.

The master template could list the high, low, avg or median, discard the freak highs and lows and calculate a sane range, etc. No price would be displayed if there was not a certain amount of data.

You heard it here first. Let's do it.
