Yeah, gas prices suck. But then again, we pay more than that per gallon for Coca Cola today, or GatorAid which is 99.9% water. I could survive without either of those beverages, but I don't think I'd survive walking to Service calls. Funny the value people put on the dollar and the choices we make.

Hello George,

We raised ours to $150 ( was 125) early summer when gas hit 2.50 a gallon. No one
peeped. We also switched from running our bucket truck to a pickup
with ladder racks. Sucks when you do an install and the bucket would
really work. We got Verizon falling all over themselves giving away
DSL here too. That forced us to look at marketing/selling to people
in the country though. I'm not price warring with them.

We also are firming up our "pay if not our equipment" service calls.
Was letting that slide too much and the infected crap people run is
not worth doing it for free.

We are looking into "alternative" technologies to power our trucks
also.
