Gas prices looks to be up close to 20% these days and may not be temporary. Rideshare Company's need to increase rate like Airlines did back when oil price rose...Oh Gas prices don't impact Rideshare's profit only their Partners profit... hmmmmmmm

Why would rideshare companies increase the rate they pay drivers? The fuel isn't costing THEM any extra. :wink:

If enough drivers hang up their keys because of fuel prices, surge pricing will adjust the effective pay rate.

Should implement a "fuel surcharge" like the logistics industry. FedEx, UPS etc. have been doing this for a long time.

I thought the increase is only temporary due to Harvey?

Airlines increase ticket prices when fuel cost rises. TK is too stupid to raise uber fares when gas prices increase. Lets hope this new CEO is a lot more competent than TK.

Just where are you getting your Facts please?
The Hurricane in Texas didn't do too much about the Fuel costs, matter of fact it was the public driving more.
Also, the Refineries are getting ready to switch to Winter fuel, which usually drives the prices up a bit.

Its capitalism 101 for a business to eat increased costs of business and not pass it on to consumers. Oh wait, no thats wrong....

price increase are permanent. Increase in gas tax, that's why gas prices are all hovering around $3 or higher.

And it has nothing to do with the 63 cent a gallon tax increase that is coming our way.

I love the misinformation here. The gas tax increase is 12 cents a gallon November 1. The oil companies raised Southern California prices about 30 cents a gallon according to my GasBuddy charts. Gas firms raise prices whenever they want and it doesn't have to be connected to anything, but the holiday weekend is a good excuse. No plant outages, no taxes, no supply shortage or anything explained.
