Gas prices have been increasing since the beginning of the year and, for now, show no signs of slowing. However, there is no sign Uber/Lyft are willing to increase commission rates for drivers to offset these increases, so how can drivers handle this cut into their earnings? Senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur offers some tips on how drivers can save money at the pump and while driving.
As drivers, we need gas to fuel our cars and it is no secret that the price of gas is going up.
Gas is the second biggest expense in my rideshare business, behind only the cost of my rideshare lease ($149 per week). I drive a 2013 Toyota Prius, which gets 50 miles per gallon (MPG). This certainly helps to offset the increase in gas prices. But for many drivers, a vehicle that gets 20 to 30 miles per gallon means this price increase is even more significant.
