What do you all charge for delivering for a cake/How are these gas prices(in the U.S.) effecting your prices ?

I only deliver wedding cakes or non-wedding cakes for 100 servings or more. My cake/catering delivery policy is free within a 15 minute drive. More than 15 minutes (approx 15 miles, and I figure it per mapquest) is $50 MINIMUM .... I usually look at the mileage and charge $1.25 per round-trip mile. This covers gas, veh maintenance, wear-n-tear, comm'l insurance, AND the pay for my staff, who does not clock out during the drive from the store to the delivery site.
