    what about you guys? Oil prices are at 63.94/barrel. This stinks. Fuel surcharges are in full swing and I have not heard anything bad from the customers. Are you guys getting any feedback from your surcharges?

    Ours jumped from 2.07 to 2.21 2 days ago and it hit 2.39 this afternoon. What the heck is their excuse now? I have not went up for fear of losing anymore clients but its fixing to happen.

    A few are at 2.38 but they are rapidly changing to 2.43. This SUCKS. The only good thing is the drought isn't letting me mow any lawn therefore lower fuel consumption. Once again THIS SUCKS.

    I guess on the plus side is these folks who have been taking my yards for 15-20 bucks are fixing to learn the meaning of working for free. Like MowEd said, it still sucks!

    We did not go out last week so starting Tuesday we will probably be driving around quite a bit. I bet we will only do about half of them. I do agree with you on the su#@ing part.

    Paid $2.48 today for 87 octane-- I think you can get it a little cheaper, but $2.38 was the bottom I've seen lately.
