eboniesmith Posted December 27, 2008 Share Posted December 27, 2008 A means of luck or careful planning? Maybe it's me, but I was under the impression, and it makes more sense to me, to be cognizant and proactive in area of your business. Now, I have to be honest and say that the only way that I know what the average gas prices are in my community, is to ride past a gas station. When I launch my vending business, however, I know I must stay abreast to the industry and find what affects gas prices as it has a huge impact on our businesses (servicing machines, etc) If I know that gas prices will rise x percent in the next month, I can schedule servicing, etc accordingly so that it won't eat into my profits. But, hey! Maybe it's me. As one of my SBA business counselors told me "You're looking into it too much!" LOL Really, though, what can we do to stay abreast to gas price changes? Share your resources!
