Shipping Charges

I am sure that this comes as a surprise to no one, but with gas at $4/gal and diesel at $5/gal (at least it was that high in Sacramento where we were last weekend), UPS has raised their rates again, and the camel’s back finally broke.  We are increasing our shipping charges today to better match what we are paying to UPS.  I wish we didn’t have to do it (I simply hate raising prices) but for us shipping charges are just a pass through, so keeping these new charges all to ourselves is not helpful for the business.
