    Gas prices are "expected" to rise this year for the first time in 4 years.

    They have, in fact, already rose substantially - by about 20 - 30 cents, while the above article says they are expected to end up around 36 cents higher than last year.

    Recently, Uber RAISED THEIR RATES in NJ after a 23 cent increase in gas prices in that state.

    These gas increases are going to be very tough on rideshare drivers unless Uber again shows that it is on top of what it's like to be a driver.

    Sincerely,
