I am starting to think that maybe the high gas prices are a good thing for our industry. One of our biggest problems is that anyone can pick up a mower from wal-mart, throw it in the back of their truck, and start mowing. I am thinking that if gas hits $3 or higher later on, we will see a lot of poorly run business go out of business and that means a little more for the rest of us. Just think how little money you could charge if a Z cost you only $200 - everybody would be mowing - but higher prices tend to weed out those who are not as serious or who run a poorly managed business. What do you think?
