    I hear that the gas prices are not going to drop anytime soon. So I was wondering if anyone was going to raise there prices a few bucks to compensate the difference in cost of fuel compared to last year. If so how are you going to go about telling your customers? Thanks Chad

    The drastic price increase will affect many aspects of our costs this spring. I am worried that transportation costs are going to drive up prices for fertilizer etc.<br>Add to this the increased wages we will have to pay to attract decent workers and you have a 15-20% increase in what we need to charge or else get really efficient!<br>I think that customers will realize that increased costs must be passed on, at least I hope so.
