Last year, on a solo op's gross of just over $130k, my fuel bill was $11k.
Now, I don't have the opportunity to condense my schedule since I live a little in the sticks.
There are days when you're halfway through your route and it starts to pour, or just rain the rest of the day, so you have to double back the next day to finish, that's just life.
I was looking at my gas / diesel slips last year, and most of them were right around $1.75 - $2.00 / gallon.
The way I see it, if it does hit $3 / gallon that's another 1/3 increase in my fuel costs.
No way I'm going to just absorb another $3,500 for the year.
Instead on my 38 accounts, I raised my fees a total of $1,000 / month.
Give thanks, for all that He has given.
