Local businesses battling high gas prices
Prices at the pump continue to climb while local businesses see their profits fall, and there is nothing they can do about it, except pass on the cost.

    There's two businesses that won't be seeing me come through their doors. Gas prices affect individuals just as well, and we can't add a surcharge to businesses we frequent. Only thing to do is shop where no surcharge is added.

      So you'd rather trade with a business that hides the extra fee's instead of one who is upfront about it? Good plan...

      Have you noticed the prices at the grocery store, or anywhere else for that matter, lately? All businesses are having to increase prices to stay profitable. Some businesses choose to do this via a fuel surcharge, some just quietly raise their prices overnight while no one is paying attention. If it costs more to do business, they are going to have to charge more to stay in business. It isn't any great conspiracy to rip you off, it's simple economics. Try using that thing between your ears to do more than hold your hat up.
