Gasoline prices are dropping, which is a good trend - the national average prices is $3.68 per gallon according the most current Dept. of Energy data. This is better than $4.50 per gallon, but it's still tough for a lot of ground transportation companies. Chauffeured transportation companies are feeling the pinch - while fuel surcharges have been increasing this year, they're still below where they need to be to cover the real cost of fuel, even as prices have dropped in the last month. Corporate and retail clients may not be thrilled to hear that you're increasing the fuel surcharge from 7% to 10%, but these charges are being increased by every transportation industry.
