Gas Price Petition

Deactivation Representation

We, the undersigned, demand that Uber & Lyft provide immediate relief from the recent surging gas prices.

  • Over the past few weeks, gas prices have increased more than $1 a gallon - on top of a 200% increase over the past 3 years.
  • In the past our rates were as high as $1.95 per mile, when gas prices were less than half of the current prices - in many markets we’re making less than $0.60 a mile!
  • Drivers are receiving as little as 20% of passenger fares!
  • IRS estimates $0.58 per mile cost to operate and maintain a vehicle, which means we lose money on many rides;
  • Uber and Lyft have never made a rate adjustment to account for the price of fuel, despite raising the prices for customers.

Drivers can no longer shoulder the burden of this expense.
