Nice post scalawag, although they most certaintly do charge for the trucks gas, kethcup and everything else, it's all included in the price.
My main point is this....lets say Favelle has one price list that says "Jungles 500....shipping extra + 15 handling charge..." or another one that says "Jungles.....515.00 + shipping" that to me seems more reasonable and easier to digest. its the exact same thing but to a buyer when you see extra charges tacked on, it looks worse. And if I want Favelles jungles, I'll pay the 515.
Its about profit, but EVERY business figures out what there cost is, and handling is certaintly an extra cost. So I think it should just be added into the price.
