This topic has been beaten to death, IMO the best solution is to just increase their prices (versus a separate line-item gas surcharge). However, if you institute a surcharge mid-season, it would probably go over better with you customers as a separate surcharge. Problem with a "surcharge" is, you get used to the extra money, most likely it covers the gas increase many times over, and if the price of gas plummets, you'll have to rescind the surcharge. But you're used to the extra dollars at that point. Better to just give yourself a raise...
