It's nice to see Parkland actually trying to save taxpayer's money on gas. Next, maybe they could cut out the ridiculous waste by canceling the last day of school. Students are not even at school for 2 hours, but the district transports them both ways.

As I understand it, Parkland is betting that fuel prices will drop and they can take advantage of the dips. What is disconcerting is that they may not be protecting themselves in case prices rise dramatically by locking in a fixed rate. I guess if this happens the taxpayers will be there. There are a lot of hedging options available (to protect on the downside and participate in the upside if fuel prices decline).....I just do not think school district administrators have the expertise to be speculating on the price of fuel, albeit their intention may be good.

Save gas? Go to the Log Cabin and sit your arse down or bring the little kiddies in there.(The fat bar maids do).

Otherwise, if you read the papers other than Johnny's sale a thon..i.e. the world news (come on, ya know, outside the log cabin and like Whitehall) You would read that CA--means California..lost a lot of loot betting on fuel futures...hope you all get exactly what you deserve...exactly..wondeful..m eowwwwwwww!
