Remember those HIGH gas prices during Harvey?

When idiots were filling up trashcans in their pickup beds...
Hour+ in line to fill up, if you could find a station with gas...

Gas peaked at around $2.60/gal/reg.

We now are right at that same $2.60 avg. having gone up ~$.60 in the past six months = almost a 30% price increase.

How much have TNC raised our rates in the past year?
I remember emailing Lyft about bump in pricing back during Harvey.
Think they added some sort of ride/bonus type intensive that week+.

Harvey gas prices without the needed price increase.
Just raising the minimum +$0.50 to the driver would be helpful.

What I remember about that was the sweet non stop surge. Up to 5x on Uber at some points. No gas meant no drivers, and on a busy weekend with lots of demand...it was awesome. Especially since I had filled up my Prius already and a full tank gives me a good 400 miles. Even when I did have to fill up, the surge pricing more than made up for those prices...but still my car only takes 9-10 gallons to fill up so didn't break the bank filling up it all. It was nice.
