    With the skyrocketing price of gas, I've scaled back my driving. I suppose Uber and Lyft will not respond to raising our plight of increased cost, but I'm betting that they will raise pax fares. Too bad...I think they may destroy what they've built. I'll sit it out somewhat for now, and...

The meat clerk was beside and I asked him if that was the correct price. He said all meat has gone up in price and that sales...

    Hey guys, I check the rates for these companies constantly and I came accross this last night. Is there an explanation behind it like a special offering this week or are these prices sticking around for good now. While Uber’s rates have been the same.

I spoke to a guy who owns many prominent restaurants in LA who uses "Market Price" all the time for high end food. He said...

    Three things are really bothering me about Uber right now: 1. Upfront pricing is really a scam for passengers (and drivers). 2. UberPool when surging actively adds riders with lower surge to reduce driver payout for those trips. 3. Riders paying cancel/no show fees and Uber not passing onto...
