Rising Fuel Prices May Impact Knoxville Schools

Craig Mobley, Business Manager for the Knoxville School district, says the price of diesel fuel is of some concern. The district locks in prices, and currently has a rate of $3.15 per gallon. The district purchases approximately 25,000 gallons a year, so an increase of say, a quarter more per gallon in price would yield an additional cost of $6,500. The district is looking for a new supplier for fuel, and Mobley hopes a similar price can be negotiated.
