    I love the naive questions.  You’d think, right?

    Several years ago, before Uber took over, taxi driver community used to fight against the regulators to increase prices in order to counteract the rising fuel prices. They had some successes, and often they were granted the temporary extra fuel surcharges on every ride. 

    None of that here for Uber.

      Uber goes the other way they do everything in an opposite fashion gas prices in Los Angeles went up from $3 to over $4 and in March of 2019 that cut the rates by 25% there you go and they expect happy drivers

    Absolutely not, not like ups or FedEx, in fact in Los Angeles we had a 25% cut in mileage from 80 cents to 60 cents while gas prices over the past six months went up from $3 a gallon to over $4 a gallon. Go figure!

      I didn’t even know UPS and FedEx fluctuated the prices.  I mean, is that often though?  They must have to go by a posted rate, I’d imagine. 

      I guess Uber doesn’t have to worry about the fluctuating fuel prices. It’s good to not have to worry about those expenses.

        Everytime gas prices Spike UPS and FedEx adjust the shipping costs by calling it fuel surcharge we don't have that Uber doesn't have that because they don't own their cars

    I don't believe so... remember when taxis used to have surcharges for high gas prices?

      I wish they did adjust, UBER cut the driver rates in Los Angeles by 25% in March 2019 and gas prices went from $3 to $4+ a gallon since the start of the year.
