I'm not in your business so I'm not familiar with your costs, but I would think that someone bidding with slim margins would get killed with a doubling of fuel costs. If this is true, and you have the choice of upping the price or folding your tent, I'd say up the ante. You have to eat.

if your mower uses a gallon an hour thats an extra $.75 per half acre lawn increase, maybe an extra buck for the truck to get to the job, if someone cant suck up an extra buck and a half well they were going out of business when the mower finally gives up the ghost anyhow.<p>Bill
