    Now that may is well under way - how was everyones 1st qt revenue's?

    We are a little behind due to lack of rain and very little snow in the month of march, but the summer looks good so far. Although everything I do is dependant upon the weather!

    So how much does everyone spend on gas for the avg man hour worked? I know this is kind of hard to figure but you guys are great pros and I know some of you have a good estimate.

    I have running about 30$ worth a gas - one Toro Z, wb, trimmer, blower. This is basically a days worth a mowing / one man crew. So in a 10 hour day that guy is using about $3 / hour.

    NW Iowa, the gas hit $2.01 yesterday. The guy we purchase diesel from told us that it will stay this way thru the summer and few sharp increases here and there.

    Although yesterday, not cure about today - crude oil went down about a $1 a barrel. So who know's.
