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

  • They keep taking more money from us, this is criminal behavior and it needs to stop.
  • GIG companies are taking advantage of everyone doing the work. Pay these employees (what they truly are) what they are owed.
  • Gas prices have increased about 50 cents per gallon. I can no longer afford to drive for a ride share.
