Uber & Lyft: Help drivers deal with higher gas prices!!

I am asking Uber & Lyft to raise the rates that the customer pays to help drivers deal with the cost of rising gas prices!

Gas prices are hitting us hard! Both companies could also take a smaller commission from fares AND we should be paid for our mileage to pick up the customer from the point where we have accepted their request to when we have dropped them off at their desired location.

Why is this important?

Can't afford to keep driving full time. Gas prices are driving us out of the rideshare industry. We need a rate increase!

Reasons for signing

  • I’m an Uber driver. Sometimes I drive 10 miles to pick up a client that request a 2 mile ride.
  • I live in California, and I detest paying over 4.10 a gallon.
  • I can only work about 10 hrs a week because of my disability. I think we should be paid from the moment we accept a request as we are using our time and gas to go and pick up. We wouldn't be doing that if we didn't get the request. Gas prices are over $3 again, and it is barely worth me getting in my car.
