    The gas prices here in Northern, NJ are at $3.19 for regular, $3.29 for mid, and $3.39 for high octane. The prices are supposed to be over $4.50 by the end of September. I haven't added a gas surcharge yet, but I think I will add a $2-4 each week charge to help cover the cost of gasoline. IMO, we should just nuke the middle east, take their oil and be done with it.

    I think it is Total B/S. I used $700.00 of Diesel a week. Thats at $2,49.9 a gal. Now it's $281.9 and they said it will be higher by the weekend.Sad thing is no one care. Working people going to have to stand up to them.

    Yes but I STILL see no decline in the disrespect towards it, if people can idle cars through a drive-through then as far as I'm concerned, someone doesn't understand SHORTAGE.

    Should I even say it? You want to kill 400 million+ people so you can pay <$2.00 for gas? :angry:

    Who's going to run the wells anyway?

    Its not like this wasn't seen coming (the gas prices). You should have had a surcharge in place the beginning of this season. UPS did, everyone who was affected by gas prices did.
