What to charge

Hi, I am a General contractor who does new houses to roofs, decks,etc .I have a customer that we built a loghouse for several years ago. I do all type's of work for Him. From mowing,powerwashing,grade work on long drive,staining,snow plowing,atv trail building,any kind of maintenance and new construction. I have been charging him $25.00 per hour for three years and would like to raise my rate. To compensate higher gas price, higher workmens comp. insur.and liability insur. What would be a fair flat rate or would you charge a different rate for different types of jobs.
I also thought about a monthly rate. Please let me know our thoughts. Thank You.

Sorry pricing questions are highly frowned upon on this website.

Please use labor+materials+overhead+proft=number formula to figure out your flat rate.
