Wake County taxpayers will save almost $600,000 this year thanks to a timely bulk fuel purchase by the Wake County Public School System’s Transportation Department. It’s the second fiscal year in a row WCPSS purchasers have been able to lock in favorable prices well below budget.
“With 2.3 million gallons left to purchase for the year, the Transportation Department pounced on Sept. 13. They locked in 1.8 million gallons at $2.97 per gallon, saving 33 cents on the budgeted price, or $594,000 on the total budgeted amount.”
