Gas Prices

What are the gas prices where you are at, last night my store where I buy everyday was $3.82 today they are $3.99. Are you guys going to raise the price of your cuts because of it and what about the accounts that you already have?

$3.59 to $3.69 for regular around here. I raised my prices in January for the upcoming season. The increase reflected what I was going to raise them anyway, plus a little extra since I figured gas would be higher than last season. And no there won't be any surcharges attached to any summer invoices. I already took it all into account.

it's going up fast is what's scary. it was less than $3 a gallon about a month or so ago. it went from $3.49 to $3.59 in one day here. i haven't looked at it in several days. i imagine it's close to $3.75 a gallon now. that's about where it topped out at last year in july. it may go to $5 a gallon or more if things keep going this way.

It's crazy! And the nitwits in Washington claim that there's nothing they can do about it which I personally think is bullsh*t!

I'm accelerating slower. I gradually accelerate. It sure does piss off people who are in a hurry, but it does save gas. Don't the prices go up with the summer blend/ summer fuel mix? I heard that somewhere.

Here in southern Ohio it's been above 3.50 for a while. It was 3.99 today and diesel is 4.25. Ridiculous 100-150 $ a week at these prices during mowing season.

Diesel is 1.339/l here so 5.06 a gallon gas is around 4.90 a gallon

Diesel and premium is $4.19 the last I checked and regular is $3.79.

Its hard for me to raise my prices much more because there's so much competition that's already cheaper than me.

Currently $3.60 per gallon here for unleaded. At the end of last month, it was down to $2.83, I think it was. The fuel burned in your equipment generally isn't a huge issue. What will cost a chunk more is operating your tow vehicles.
