Funny, I heard the same thing predicted for this summer. I wouldn't worry about it - alot can and will happen between now and then...

FWIW, when gas goes up, so does lawn care!

Wouldn't worry about it? The pump prices have leveled off at 1.99, but I remember paying around 1.85 for 87 just one year ago (and I thought that was outrageous then!). I doubt they will hit $3.00, but I bet we'll see mid $2.30's for 87 next summer and will probably level off around $2.15's.

IT COSTED ME $13 TO FILL A FIVE GALLON CAN THE OTHER DAY GEE WIZ!!!

In light of the possible increase in fuel, I am sending a letter of possible fuel surcharge for next year. If it gets over 2.00 a gallon (where I live), they will simply pay the percentage difference.

So if the price of fuel goes to 2.95 and I use 2 gallons for that property (trucking and mowing combined), They'll get charged 1.90 on top of their quote...


You service for 7-22-05

Mow and Trim......................48.00
Fuel Surcharge*....................1.95
------------------------------------------
Total 49.95


*Fuel surcharge is based upon fuel prices rising above $2.00 per gallon. Surcharge estimation also takes into account price falling below $2.00 per gallon.

Ever notice WHEN fuel goes up? 73-74 when it doubles then it holds pretty steady tilll 79-80 when it doubles again holds steady till early 90'swhen it dobles again so its time for it to go up again. last yr it was somewhere around $1.50 a gal. so if it doubles like it has at every major raise $3.00 is not out of the question and the timing is right.

Mac. Can remember it at .27 a gallon

Supply and demand, more global usage - same amount of oil. NAFTA, globalizatioin, world economy, war, blah, blah, blah. Mr. Bush, tell me again how I'm better off?!!

Supply and demand has NOTHING to do with the increases. It's real simple: Gas is a monopoly and all the oil companies are getting richER off of us. There is NOTHING we can do about it except ask our government to act more socialistic (by regulating oil prices), which is a very bad idea.

Amen ******!........the less government intervention the better.

I am big fan of domestic exploration and drilling so we don't have to depend on others.

Bet I started something with that one!

Thanks to the democrats we won't be drilling in the arctic (where no one lives!) to try and end our dependecy on opec. Oh but they will *****, moan and complain at Bush for high gas prices.

The reality is that the oil companies are NOT chomping at the bit to drill in Alaska because they know that it would take ten years to get it into the market and that there really isn't enough of it there to take the place of more than a small percetage of what we now import. We have to import whether we like it or not.

We paid a higher percentage of our income in fuel in the 80s than we do now. It WILL go up in price - everything of value does! There is nothing we can do about it, but vote for the person you think will make the best changes. But, nobody is going to bring the gas price down.

Again, don't worry about it and price accordingly.

I wished someone would seriously look alternative fuels.I am sick of being held hostage by ********** and big oil companies.A good friend of mine owns a service station, and he only makes like 1 to 2 cents a gallon.Big oil is breaking our backs while the US consumer foots the bill.

Yep, I keep hearing this fallacy as well.. Only making $.01-.02 a gallon, Yeah, right.. Ya'll are asking the wrong question anyway... The real ?? is, Why must I pay $.40 in tax per gallon?
