The Wall Street Journal: Uber adds a temporary fuel surcharge to offset high gas prices

United States

Uber Technologies Inc. is imposing a temporary surcharge on U.S. customers to soften the blow to drivers from mounting gas prices.

The fuel surcharge goes directly to drivers, the ride-sharing and food-delivery company said Friday. It ranges from 45 cents to 55 cents for Uber UBER, +1.15% riders and 35 cents to 45 cents for Uber Eats customers. The charge will be in effect for the next two months.
