Blue’s News July 2010
|FUEL SURCHARGE TO REMAIN STABLE IN JULY
Considering the price of regular unleaded fuel in Florida remained relatively stable during June, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will remain at 5.5% for July. With this, our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.
How it’s calculated: 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.
*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
