Three Ways to Maximize Your Fuel Savings This Fall Season
Posted on 11/17/2016 by Lisa Durrett | 0 Comments
Along with falling temperatures, the fall season has also seen relatively steady gas prices. That’s great news, and according to AAA, we can expect steady prices or even a slight price decline to stick around throughout the rest of the fall season. In fact, small businesses in several states will be able to purchase fuel for around and even under $2 a gallon in November.
For small businesses running a fleet, this means less money spent on one very expensive operating cost. But your fuel savings don’t have to stop there. GPS fleet tracking technology provides a number of tools that help reduce fuel consumption and spend. Here are just a few features you can use to reduce fuel costs for your small business this fall:
- Efficient Routing: Did you know that nearly 389.74 million gallons of gas were consumed each day in the U.S. in 2015? Fleet management technology can create the shortest routes for your drivers and re-route them on the fly to avoid traffic congestion, reducing fuel usage.
- Idle Reports & Alerts: Americans waste millions of gallons of gas per day through idling—at stop lights, in traffic and simply to warm the interior of the vehicle during the fall and winter. With idle reports and alerts, small business owners can pinpoint and reduce excessive vehicle idling within their fleet and save more.
- Fuel Card Integration: Finding the right fuel card can save you up to 15% on fuel. By integrating your fuel card data into a GPS fleet tracking solution, you can monitor transaction data and eliminate abusive purchases.
