Our sales are down 10k from the previous season. 10% would be $21,400 for us and I do not think we are there. I won't know for 4-7 days when we get our last amx bill and have all the receipts for the last year accounted for. My guess is $15,000 so probably going to be 7%. And thats way to high and we are actively researching more fuel efficient mowers / alternative fuel mowers.

Actually got the numbers early came in at 7.43% this year I had 7.42% last year. 5.9% for 2010 and 4.95% for 2009. The new trucks have helped keep that down a bit with out them Id be looking at 9-10%. Their is a big difference from the 1.89 a gallon price I paid the day Obama took office and the 3.65 a gallon price it is today which is down from nearly 5 bucks last summer. It's really hard to cap it when the fuel prices are jumping 100% in 4 years.

Just a quick look shows 8-9% all gasoline. But that includes snow plowing, snow blowing etc too in the winter. Didn't separate it all out by services.

So far I'm at 8.9% and climbing. Probably about through half my receipts for 2012.
