    It's a form of inflation yes. Everyone is feeling it. Swift Transportation just up-ed their fuel surcharge. Not much you can do about it in a fuel based business except tighten that route, and use the most fuel efficent stuff possible. I visted the Greasel site the other day and they are swamped by people looking to get around the fuel problem. The cost of electric is still not practical yet. I can't believe that more companies aren't toying with it. I've seen a few greens mowers that are electric and that makes sense on triplexes. Last thing you want is fuel leaking onto a green or a tee.
