What is the fuel and materials surcharge for?
The basic price our company charges covers operating costs - labor, supplies, insurance, energy, etc.- plus a profit. The fuel surcharge is needed to pay for the marginal increase in costs due only to the higher cost of diesel fuel and other petroleum based products while oil prices are very unstable.
