Get Rid Of Your Fuel Surcharge?

Posted on November 25, 2008
FUEL FREEFALL: Who would have thought that gas prices would fall about as fast as they rose last spring and summer. The cynical wisdom maintains that gas prices always rise faster, and fall slower. This time around, with the economy tanking, it doesn't look like gas prices are taking their time to drop. This limousine operator has dropped her $25 fuel surcharges. This may make good business sense, now that gas averages more than $2 per gallon LESS than in June/July. As consumers tighten spending, you never want to give them a reason to justify holding back. Look for more fuel surcharges to become de facto rebates. -- M.R.
