If you’ve been in the car in the last month you’ve undoubtedly noticed the cost of gas has skyrocketed.  That’s about to effect Uber and Lyft. Both companies have announced that they will be adding a fuel surcharge to offset the cost of rising gas prices. Uber and UberEats will add 45 to 55 cents per trip.   If you think the money is going to the company, it’s not.  The money will go to the drivers since they are responsible for fueling their cars.  Lyft, who has not given a specific amount of the surcharge, will also  pass the money on to drivers.  The surcharge is supposed to temporary.
