FUEL SURCHARGE TO REMAIN STABLE IN SEPTEMBER

Considering the price of regular unleaded fuel in Florida remained relatively stable during August, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will remain at 5.5% for September. 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

We focus our attention on a root-cause approach to addressing exceptions or irregularities. This scorecard is reviewed daily and all exceptions are managed on a case-by-case basis. This is just another example of how we are committed to customer service – after all, that’s why we’re in business.
