One of the most interesting things about Uber is the way its prices change at different times of day and at certain times during the year. In a nutshell, when demand is usually high, prices go up and in normal times they come back down. This is called “surge pricing” or “dynamic pricing” and it is most common at peak times on Friday and Saturday nights, on certain holidays, such as Halloween and New Year’s Eve, and during particularly big events and bad weather conditions.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
