Blue’s News November 2009
|FUEL SURCHARGE TO INCREASE IN NOVEMBER
Considering the quick spike of regular unleaded fuel in Florida decreased during October, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will subsequently increase to 6% for November. Despite this increase, our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.
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: http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/hist/mg_rt_flw.htm

Congratulations to Elizabeth Nessler with CNL Bank in Jacksonville. She was the lucky winner of last month’s contest after she first spotted one of our professional drivers in their new uniforms.
All drivers will continue to present a consistent, clean-cut, professional image with picture identification badge at all times, so there shouldn’t be any concern when the new uniforms are fully implemented.
