What’s in a “Keep it Simple Fuel Audit”
Get a better deal on your commercial fuel.
Fuel is usually a top expense for a small business.
We want to help you manage that expense.
We have a transparent way to analyze your fuel expense that breaks it down in an easily understood format. We’ll demystify what you’re paying in fuel so you can grab control of your gasoline and diesel bills.
At Star Oilco, we ‘Keep it Simple’ when analyzing fuel bills.
Today, two trends can be witnessed in the Pacific Northwest: fuel prices are dropping fast and wages are rising against that trend. Retail stations are keeping more margins than ever in retail fuel history. With minimum wages approaching $15 in parts of the Pacific NW, the cost of retail gas stations is rising faster than inflation. Stand-alone commercial cardlock locations such as Pacific Pride and CFN help you save on your own labor, as well as avoid the higher retail cost.
Dig into your bill for an understanding of what you are paying and what you are paying for. Let us demystify the fees, charges, and hard-to-understand line items of our competitors. It seems that many of our competitors, much like cell phone companies, want to give you a bill that is as complex as possible so it’s difficult for you to understand your cost of fuel.
We can demystify this and show you what you pay, what’s in that cost of fuel and how you can save going forward. We do this by concentrating on this fact: there are only three fees in the total cost of a gallon of gas or diesel.
The three costs in the price on your fuel bill are:
- The commodity cost of fuel (the wholesale and verifiable fuel cost itself),
- The fuel taxes charged by the Feds, State, and local governments on top of that, and
- The margin your fuel vendor puts on top of those two very transparent costs.
These three costs can be audited and confirmed. We will empower you with the knowledge of what your vendor is charging you and determine if it is a fair price for the service. Beyond that, there should be no other costs. If your vendor has other costs (fees, invoice charges, etc.), we’ll show you what those really cost per gallon so you understand your true cost fuel.
Star Oilco makes this clear and easy to understand. Let us know if we can help.
