Have You Got The Fee-ver?

We feel your pain:

Two dollars for pizza delivery.

An extra $1.70 to ship a $20 package.

A $10 surcharge for lawn-mowing service.

Staff writer Ylan Mui today writes that the rising cost of fuel is rippling far beyond what consumers pay at the pump. Companies across an array of industries are instituting fuel surcharges that are nibbling away at consumers' pocketbooks. Like the airline industry with its baggage fees, businesses say they are being squeezed by higher gas prices and must pass on the costs to survive.

Let us know of any new fees you've been hit with, or have had to institute in recent months. We'd like to come up with a top 10 list of your favorites or maybe that should be your not-so favorites.

Can't think of any just now, but would definitely be curious about this list. Thanks for posting, Dan!
