I raised my tuning prices since Jan 1 by $3.00 now.  I have had no audible 
complaints about it.

Subject: Fuel surcharge?

     Last week I got a bill from my pool service with a fuel surcharge 
added.  Today I got another from my lawn service with a fuel surcharge also. 
Should we,  1. Absorb the higher travel costs and say nothing or,  2. Add a 
fuel surcharge too or, 3. Raise our rate to cover the extra cost and lump it 
together with tuning?  Comments?
