    Has anybody had any backlash or complaints from customers about the fuel prices skyrocketing. I heard on the news tonight that it was $6 per gallon :dizzy: :cry: I mean come on, our gas prices have almost doubled this year how can we continue to handle this. We can only pass so much of the burden to the customer before they say "thanks, but no thanks". I am evaluating my driving habits and reorganizing my routes, but that is only gonna help some. Any thoughts or comments would be appriciated.

    As long as they keep the fuel surcharge off my Miller Lite I will be OK!

    Thought about stocking up today on the Brew for the next week. Lucky for me I am on Vacation during all of this and have enough around the house to keep me from getting bored.

    If you're in the East you should be worried if there is even going to be any gas. If there isn't any, the price doesn't mater. If it runs out cutting grass is the first thing that will stop.
