    This happens every year. Its not the price that makes this a scam, its just the man doing it. We do several driveways in subdivisions at a really low price but the convenience of plowing 50 driveways in a couple hours or so and amount of snow we average warrant the lower prices. I'm not defending this guy at all but is the guy who charges 40 and 50 bucks a push for the same driveway your getting 25 bucks for a scam also? I really like that book they showed with reputable companies in their, wish we had something like that around here.
