I was going to say when the snow is almost melted but I guess that wouldn't work in your location!

I will not raise my prices until 2006. I have given a price to my customers and that is that. If they can not trust my word, then I am nothing. I intend to raise my prices in 2006, but until then, no matter what the gas situation is, the prices I have given are like being carved in stone.

We raised all of ours on April 1st. Did not have one customer leave us. Went up $2.00 to $3.00 per account (mowing).

All new customers I have figured in higher gas prices. I have also told them if it soars like it has been doing I will be adding a surcharge.
