    Our local news station is going to do a story tonight on how the gas prices are effecting local lawn and landscaping companies. Just thought that it made me feel all warm inside that a news station would do a story about our industry like that

    I just finished watching the story..it was ok. Basically it was a guy just talking about how gas prices are cutting in his profit big time and how if they go over $2.00 he is going to have to pass the extra expense onto the customers.

    It jumped from $1.80 to $1.95 around here today. And it's only May 5. Higher rates are coming, and my fuel clause is waiting for them.
