I went to FedEx-Kinko's today to ship a bike in a cardboard bike box, and to my surprise, I was quoted $115 to ship from California to Florida! I mentioned to the clerk that the past I've typically spent $50-$60 shipping coast to coast, and his answer was that shipping costs have gone up due to gas prices, etc. I didn't have time to investigate further so I ended up forking over the money. Is that price typical nowadays, or could there perhaps been an error in measuring the box? Unfortunately, I didn't take down the measurements of the box before I had it shipped.
