Blue’s News February 2011
|SLIGHT INCREASE IN FUEL SURCHARGE FOR FEBRUARY
Considering the price of regular unleaded fuel in Florida increased in January, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will be 8.5% for February. Despite this slight increase, 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:
Blue Streak Couriers will provide normal routed and scheduled service on Washington’s Birthday, Monday, February 21, 2011. If your office will be closed and not require normally scheduled service this day, please let us know via email, [email protected]
* Did You Know … This holiday is designated as “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. Most other institutions such as state and local governments and private businesses simply refer to this as President’s Day.
