Buying a gallon of gas is a complicated matter for a municipality.
Hodgenville City Clerk MaDonna Hornback explained the decision to change fuel providers to members of City Council Monday night.
“I looked at the cost and what it will save the city,” said Hornback. “I do that on everything I do.”
City vehicles were refueled at Bault Oil, a supplier outside city limits, up until a couple of months ago. The city’s contract called for a purchase price of 7 cents per gallon higher than wholesale.
