FUEL SURCHARGE DECREASES IN AUGUST

Due to the slight decrease of regular unleaded fuel in Florida during July, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will drop to 4.5% in August. 

If the average price* of regular, unleaded fuel is above $1.79 during the last week of any given month, the surcharge will be in effect on the first day of the following month. Thank you for your understanding.

*as reported for the state of Florida, regular gas, all formulations, on the United States Department of Energy website

BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER

With summer winding down and school starting in most districts this month, these back to school safe driving tips will help ensure that everyone remains secure this school year.

  1. Observe School Zone Speeds. Many school districts have a zero tolerance for speeders.
  2. Obey the Crossing Guard. There might be a child still crossing the street that you can’t see; it’s important to do what they say.
  3. Exercise Caution around School Buses. Because of the large amount of children entering and exiting the bus at various stops, it’s imperative that extra caution is used when driving around a school bus.
  4. Watch for Darting Children. You never know when a small child might dart out from between two parked cars and fast reflexes are what’s needed to prevent an accident.
  5. Don’t Forget about the Frosh. If you live in an area that has a college or university, you’re probably used to the influx of students each fall. However these students are often not as cautious as they normally would be (especially if it’s their freshman year), and cross the roads without looking. Being extra vigilant around these students could save both an accident and a life.
