With the rising costs of fuel people will start scaling back and saving money anyway they can. The price of goods and services are increasing much faster then peoples salaries. I think over the next few years we will see a big decline for residential mowing of average working/middle class homes. I know fuel has skyrocketed due to the hurricane and fuel will come down in 6-8 weeks. But we also all know that fuel will continue to rise every year and it wont be long before $3.50 a gallon is the normal going rate.
