I wouldn't completely agree with that. Since the rise in cost of fuel lots of things have gone up in price but they just raise the price instead of adding a fuel surcharge. If you look at the boats that don't have fuel surcharges there trips are more money. So either way your paying for it. Now let's say fuel gets below $3.50 and boats stop charging a surcharge. What happens to the boats that have it already built into there all inclusive price.....?
