    Paid like 1.89 2 weeks ago. Paid 2.08 yesterday. Seriously considering getting a 1000 gallon tank here and get it wholesale. Can save .40 cents a gallon or so I think. Going to look into it. As far as raising some or a fuel surcharge. Alot of delivery companies etc are charging a fuel surcharge. I know UPS is when we recive things at my pt job as well as the trucking companies.

    I raised some rates this year that were low to begin with on accts hat I took over from my brother in law when he got out. There is a few accts I go out of my way for that I told them it was going to be XX more for a fuel charge and if fuel comes back down soon I would be happy to take it back off and they seemed understanding. New bids take this into acct.
