Blue’s News February 2010
|FUEL SURCHARGE TO REMAIN THE SAME FOR JANUARY
Considering the price of regular unleaded fuel in Florida remained relatively stable during December, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will remain at 5.5% for January. This continues the trend of our fuel surcharge being 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

DID YOU KNOW …
What we refer to as President’s Day is actually designated “Washington’s Birthday” in section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law that specifies holidays for Federal employees. Though other institutions such as state and local governments and private businesses may use other names, we thought we’d deliver the real story.
