Gas here in Philly and Bucks are paying 2.95 to 3.00 per gallon. Two/three months ago prices were around 2.45/2.55. When I was in NJ I was paying 2.11/2.25. I even seen a few gas stations in Jersey for 2.07. NJ prices are almost as much as Philly 2.77/2.90. Uber is lowering Quest, promotions, consecutive trip bonus, and in some cities per min/mile rates.
It's bad enough they cut rates, take away bonuses, lower quests, but they do nothing when gas has gone up .50 or more per gallon.
Riders, Would you be extremely upset if Uber and Lyft surcharged your trip by 1.00 on short trips 2.00 on medium trips, 3.00 on 45+ min trips to help drivers with gas prices?
Riders, since gas prices are rising everywhere and drivers rates and bonuses are being cut would you be willing to pay a few more $$$ per ride? Do you care at all that the drivers are making less and less money? Or do you just cate that your fare is cheap and thats all that matters to you?
For those RIDERS who generally dont ever tip would you be willing to tip now $1/$3 considering how high gas prices are? If not why not?
For those RIDERS who do generally tip would you be willing to tip your driver the extra $1/$3 depending on length of your ride? If yes why? If no why not?
