We sent out a letter with all our renewals and 3.85/ gallon was our trigger to raise rates a bit. We haven't mowed one lawn yet and today it went to 3.89/ gallon. I just heard on the national news....$6.00/gallon is a real possibility and more like a probability. I hate govt. and all the oil tycoon's. I hope they all rot in Hell!
