Now that a lot of us are getting our numbers together let's take a look at exactly how much increased prices of fuel cost us. My mower fuel went from 2.5% of gross to 3.1% or .6% total. My vehicle fuel went from 1.5% of gross to 1.7% or .2% total. The reason it didn't change like the mower gas was I was able to increase my truck mileage by 2 MPG with a rear gear change. In any case I saw a total of .8% total increase. Given my average mowing price of $49 a yard I would have to increase the price 49 cents to cover my increased costs. Since I took the high price of fuel as an opportunity to raise prices an average of $5 on over half of my customers last year I think I pretty well got it covered without a fuel surcharge.
