Hey Slowcowboy, higher gas prices will be paid by everyone you do work for, they know suff will cost more and they expect it I'd say, shouldn't take much of a sales pitch to say, "well, because of these gas prices I'll have to have $XX.00 more to make the same thing I was".....what are they going to do, let the hay rot? Don't worry about it, what goes around comes around!
I voted to grin and bear it. Since I'm retired I don't go to work. My bike takes premium, the 1600 gets about 22mpg I guess, depends on how I ride it, my dual sport bike gets about 50mpg, if I stay under 70. But I'm also not going to ride in the rain or when it's really hot or when it gets too cold! Doesn't leave much riding time does it?
Yep, prices are manipulated along with demand. Three years from now we'll be talking about $6 a gallon for gas.
