Summer slow down, more drivers coming on to the platforms with inflation and recession talks all bad news. 👎 TGIF smh...
And yet, somehow like cats, we still manage to land with our feet under us. Why, because we are survivors! My plan is to only drive when it pays this summer and not try to push square pegs through round holes. $4.20 gas is keeping me disciplined in my 18MPG minivan.

Eh. Maybe we spoke too soon. I haven’t driven in almost two weeks, but I was shocked to see $13 surges in Durham earlier today. Thats way more than I remember at this time of the year. The surge was begging for us to sign on bro. Lol.

Because the company, Uber, has not controlled costs relative to net income, the short-term plan is to greatly reduce incentives, promotions of all kinds, including for new drivers.

That's okay IF
they add a variable charge that reflects the spiking cost of gasoline. The public understands this and will pay it.
