In December of 1991, I graduated from FSU, located in Tallahassee, FL, and moved to Atlanta, a distance of what, 300 miles? Difference in the price of a gallon of gas? About 20 cents.

Why? Click on the link below. If you're near one of those spurs (or something similar in another part of the country), gas is cheap. If you're not, gas is expensive.

We add a fuel fee to each monthly statement. It is not a lot for each customer, but collectively it adds up. Here is a link that has been helpful to me.
