Well for years gas was $4+ a gallon which not only raised prices but tacked on fuel cost fees. Now fuel has dropped (why, has peace broken out in the middle east? Don't think so) so why are the fuel fees still being charged? Why haven't prices returned to their original prices? No one asking why

Yep, I still get the same $3-4 "fuel surcharge" every time a delivery truck stops at my place.
Fuel is down a couple dollars gallon from this time even a year ago.
It was costing me $120-30 to fill up my truck. Filled up yesterday for $70.

We have several venues here on our island that use Sysco. 

Because a car ferry is necessary to reach us, Sysco thinks they can tack on a surcharge for each account they have here.

The total gives them a pretty hefty bit of change.

The charge for a semi-trailer to cross is $35.00 R/T.  Sysco collect several times that amount. In summer the truck comes twice a week.

Exactly the opposite......

The major oil producing countries dumped billions of barrels onto the market.

Why?

In order to decrease the income being used by the unfriendlies to purchase things that go boom.

ChefRoss-

Where're you located, Chef- Nantucket or the Vinyard?

We've had a couple timseshares In Vinyard Haven since 1979, but seldom get there from Chicago.  Have good luck renting them, though, since they're in the High Season.
