Fueling Good About 2012?

Well, we made it. Surviving 2011 wasn’t easy – the prolonged economic troubles, shifting global issues, rising food prices, etc…but look on the bright side, we made it through not one, but two threatened apocalypses! 2012 is bound to be a better year (and it only includes one Judgment Day from what I’ve heard).

I pay no attention to that nonsense, and you shouldn’t either. There are everyday things that consume our time, like spending time with family or enjoying life. As everyone gets over their holiday hangover and settles in for yet another year, you may be ready to finally get a hold of your fuel program. That’s where we come in.

In 2011 fuel savings was as tricky as ever. Crude was at it’s highest in April, closing out at $114.13 on April 29th. We weren’t buying it here at Sokolis Group with the belief that this was not even a $100 market. It eventually came down to a yearly low on October 3rd at $76.97. We advised some of our clients to buy then believing that it went too low! It has since creped back up. We finished out the year in a mid to high $90s. A lot of that had to do with the tight supply in Europe andAsia. TheU.S. has been a major exporter of diesel, more than ever before.

Luckily, there are ways to improve your program. We have experts that spend all day every day looking at fuel purchases. We know the industry and we have the resources to lower and control your diesel fuel prices. GEICO has it right: a few minutes of your time could save you a lot of money. But to save that money on your fuel program (not your insurance), you have to take a moment to pick up the phone and give me a call Conor Proud at 267-482-6159 or drop me an email cproud@sokolisgroup.com. Let’s talk about how Sokolis Group may be able to help you save money in 2012.
