Fuel is expensive, volatile, and one of the most important pieces of the limousine industry cost puzzle. Until technology advances to the point of providing viable alternative vehicle solutions for the entire industry, operators will continue to depend on the remains of fossils to make the wheels go ‘round.

While pump price is mostly out of our hands, operators can still control fuel purchases through the use of fleet fuel cards. These programs offer benefits such as comprehensive reporting, security, expense monitoring, and other incentives such as discounts and cash-back rewards in some cases. Operators should choose a card that matches well with their business needs.
