Are we getting any more money now that gas prices are going up? In other words, are our ride fairs reflective of the current gas price increases?? 30 more per gallon than two months ago?
And that's another good point. How the hell could Uber or Lyft justify taking a penny for gas price increases? The driver is the one paying for it!!!!A 10-20% jump in 2 months is just ridiculous. I don't know about anyone else, but I can't even get the cheap stuff at under $3/gal anymore.
There may be some good news on the horizon however. Uber has been raising prices in some markets. In Tampa they raised prices, but the drivers got zilch. In Philly they raised prices and the drivers got a 10% bump in time and mileage pay. In Portland pax tell me that the $5 deal has been replaced with a $7.50 deal, so perhaps they are testing the waters here for a price increase.
