Summer is right around the corner, and with the arrival of the season also comes with increased road traffic and the rising cost of fuel. If you’re running a Small Business, every dollar counts! According to Gasbuddy.com, the current National Average for Regular Fuel as of May 2019 is $2.845/gallon and continues to rise as the weather gets warmer.
As a result, the utilization of fuel cards is essential to keep your fuel costs low; and when paired with a Fleet GPS Solution, such as EZ Fleet, it is shown to save 20-30% of the overall cost of fuel. For a small business with historical averages of 100-125 gallons per month per vehicle, this equals roughly $57-$107 per month per vehicle!
Other than saving money at the pump, a small business owner can also have additional information at their disposal such as Location Discrepancies, Fuel Quantity Discrepancies and Fuel Type Discrepancies when paired with a Fleet GPS Solution. The owner will know if someone is misusing their fuel card: for example, if an employee purchases too much fuel than what their vehicle can hold, if someone used their fuel card without the vehicle being present, or if the incorrect type of fuel was purchased for their company vehicle.
