    Gas prices lately are killing me!! It is terrible when you spend $25 just to fill up your gas cans!!

    Anyone out there charging a premium due to gas price increases? I am considering this with my customers and wondered how much/if anything you are charging and how you broke the news. Did you lose any customers?

    My agreements include the following. 'A 3.5% surcharge will be applied when the price of gas is/or above $2.00 per gallon for 87 octane'.

    So If I understand you, a $25.00 lawn with 3.5% fuel surcharge comes to a wopping $25.87. I hope you round off to 26.00. . . :waving:

    I have raised all my customers 10 dollars a month. They all understood.

    I have a gas surcharge in place to accomodate the high prices. Trying filling up a 32 gallon truck. Cost me 61.00 the other day. Filled up my gas cans the other day and that cost me 50.00
