While I sympathize with you and concede that you have a valid point of your
own, the issue here is not the actual price. Consider instead in terms of
the percentage difference.

What if you were able to raise your service and product fees by 70% ?? What
if you had to lower them? What if your gas prices suddenly increased 70% to

With best regards,

         Get real you hardly pay anything for petrol as it is!
         In the UK we pay about 5.4 dollars per gallon.
         [Bart:] Indeed, Over here in holland (the Netherlands ) we pay about
 $ 1.5 for one liter!!!! It is frustrating to see how everybody here tries to
 save gasoline, and indirect so the environment, by buying small economical
 cars with engines of about 1000cc, and then see Americans use huge
 quantities of very cheap gasoline in cars that are way overpowered for their
 purpose !!! No I 'm sorry, but I can't feel sorry for you also....
