Anonymous asked: Many places in my area didn't start charging a delivery fee until the last time gas prices went really high a few years ago. At the time they said it was because of the high cost of gas. Of course most of those delivery fees have never gone away. Are you saying that the delivery driver probably didn't even get that fee despite the fact that they are the ones that have to pay for gas? It seems like it would be a big scam if businesses charged for deliver because of the high price of gas then don't even give the extra money to the driver.
I’ve received a number of messages from delivery people saying they never see that money. So it seems to be a scam. In NYC most places offer it for free, so I cant comment personally.
