|SLIGHT INCREASE IN FUEL SURCHARGE FOR AUGUST
Considering the increase in fuel prices during July, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will increase to 12% 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:
