    right now the gas has dropped here about 13 cents in the last week, we are down to 2.06

    But I raised my additional services prices, not the mowing

    I feel that the hike really depends on the size of the lawn and the distance to travel to maintain that property

    What is your hourly fuel cost when you estimated? What is it now? Once you know that, you can then easily find out what your surcharge should be. Realisticly, for my residentials, we are talking about $.30-$.45 per cut. Is it worth it?
