LOS ANGELES -- Snowed-under New Yorkers may not be the only ones getting gouged by Uber's surge pricing. A woman here in sunny California says she got stuck with a $357 Uber bill that she didn't see coming.

    Does anyone know for sure if the driver gets the surge rates, or do they get paid what the normal rate is with uber keeping the rest. Please, only answer this if you are sure, not what you heard from someone.
