Will gas prices ever destroy this industry?

Whoe gets concerned about gas prices? if your in fert business its a petroleum based product plus gets delivered on truck which use deisel. ferts going up every year which makes our prices go up. If your cutting grass same thing. your at a house then gone in 30 minutes driving. mowers blowers everything is ran off gas. Will it get so bad one day people say you know what forget spraying my yard, and ill push my own yard. Seems these r 2 things that will go very fast. am i over thinking? we can always raise our prices to have the same profit margin but how much will customers take before saying screw it im done? or will just the bad companies fail and good ones continue on their path.... im just thinking out loud but its febuary. gas is supppossed to be at its lowest level. oil is now 95.00/barrel. just kinda scary. thoughts?
