TikToker @nikhilslife posted a video accusing Uber of “price gauging.” He noticed that when listing his pickup location from LAX, the cost was much higher than if he listed it a mere 500 feet away from the airport.

The pricing showed $42.07 for an UberBlack and $38.96 for an UberX.
“But if I move my pickup destination from LAX to the Hyatt Regency, which is a hotel quite literally 500 feet from the L.A. exit, it’s now going to cost me $8.93,” he explained.
The adjusted price showed $8.93 for an UberX and $25.75 for an Uber Black.
People in the comment section shared their thoughts on Uber’s prices.
“It also adjusts costs for traffic, and airports induce higher fees,” a person added.
“Because they have to pay a fee to the airport for pick up there,” someone suggested.
