New 9% fuel surcharge

Hi,
Just wondering if anyone has heard of a new 9% fuel surcharge that is being tacked on to estimates since my estimate this morning had one.

The fuel surcharge as posted is supposed to based on $1.753 per gallon which would generate a 7% fuel surcharge. Call them on the 9% because that is not accurate. We are all praying this war will be quick and fuel prices will become reasonable again.

Tragic,

Edward is right. the current fuel surcharge is 7%. Some companies even charge a 4% IRR (Insurance Related Revenue, offsets for the high cost of insuring the moving industry. Since 9/11, the moving industry has seen an increase of over 60% in insurance.)
