A local landscape contractor called me today to ask about fuel sur-charges for his business. He wondered what we were doing about the rising cost and if we were adding an extra charge. My answer was no not really. We have about a 65 to 70 percent prepay on our lawn fertilizing accounts. I told him we won't try to collect a fuel charge on a prepaid account or on our bill at time of service accounts. I explained that the price we quoted in Feb of 2008 was good and we will continue to honor that price. I don't feel right about charging more for fuel if we did not tell our customers in advance that it could happen. Let's face it a customer that's pre-paid is all paid up for the season and trying to bill for fuel cost is in my opinion wrong. Who would ever think fuel would be where it's at today and increase so quickly. Not me. We are however, adjusting our pricing as needed for any new accounts this year. What do you think and are you adding any fuel charges? How much are you charging and do you have a formula to come up with an amount or percentage?
