Rising Gas Prices Are An Excuse To Raise Towing Fees Everywhere photo

News coming out of Tallahassee, Florida makes it official and reveals the bigger national pattern. Towing companies are using rising gas prices as an excuse to push for fee increases all over the country.

According to an article in, the Tallahassee City Commission is considering higher prices, from $88 to $100, then another $10 added on July 1.

This is the same agenda being pushed in Alexandria, Virginia, as discussed in my previous blog posting. It is happening in some other cities I haven't gotten around to blogging about, yet, and you can expert this cost-increase rationalization for towing fees to appear at a city near you in the near future.

What about the other side of the coin? Citizens are pressed hard by rising gas prices and need a break!
