Question: How will the rising gas effect UPS, DHL, Fedex...?
Will they still be able to run business with out raising prices?

The truth is we the consumer have to pay for the price of shipping and handling no matter what, if that means paying UPS a few bucks more for shipping in to our door or if it means paying $50 extra at Walmart for "artificial inflation," I talked about in a previous post. We still have to pay for shipping either way! So in a since that might actually benefit UPS if they can figure out how to use it to thier advantage. Right?
