    I do that in two weeks! Others probably do that in a week. Welcome to the industry.

    The only thing I have purchased gas for is for my truck, sometimes when my dad gets home, he grabs 4 cans and fills them up while the prices are going up, He does that when I'm out mowing or something, I go take the cans to go fill them up, and there is already gas for them. So I don't complain.

    Thats around $25 a day if you're going 7 days a week, and around $34 a day if going 5 days a week. Which runs at 6-7 gallons a day or 9 or so, which is not bad at all for your truck and equipment. It's bad that gas is $4 a gallon its a freakin joke.
