Uber is supporting more than 700 cities around the world and each region is having individual prices to match the local taxi fares. When the demand is high for Uber cars the prices will go up. Uber surge pricing is very normal especially in big cities, where the Uber fans are heavily using UberX in peak hours such as going to and home from work.
Peak hours on weekdays usually occur between 6-10 AM and 5-8 PM when people are getting to and from work. Friday and Saturday are also peaking when it's "TGIF" time and people are going to and from the nightlife. Sunday is more a casual day with potential surged prices in the afternoon when the late Sunday brunch is over.
New Year’s Eve is one of the most important days for Uber Black with super high demand all the day and night. The day is known for expensive Champagne, but also Uber taxies are having surged prices, especially in Amsterdam, Cape Town, Edmonton.
