Have you noticed you’re not getting as many Surge or Prime Time requests as you did in the past? There could be a reason for that. Today, senior RSG contributor Christian Perea analyzes what’s happening with Surge and Prime Time, why it’s happening and what drivers can do about it.

Where I once could reliably get a 2.0x in Soma everyday at 4 p.m. I can now only maybe get a 1.25x once or twice a week.
