GASOLINE & DIESEL
Ohio Schools Council bids gasoline and diesel fuel semi-annually as a fixed-price differential based on the daily contract average O.P.I.S. price. This fixed-price differential includes state and PAT tax, as well as the inspection/spill fee. Delivery terms are next day, or same day for emergency orders.
OSC bids 87, 89 and 93 octane gasoline, 40, 45 and 50 cetane diesel fuel and heating oil.
As a result of our volume purchasing power, OSC was able to again secure competitive pricing on diesel fuel with Lykins, averaging 0.4095 – 0.5271 in discounts per gallon compared to retail prices. Last year, 38 members save approximately $1,859,045.52 using the OSC diesel bid.
OSC’s prices average 21% less than retail prices for the Midwest!
Increase your fuel economy while reducing carbon pollution and maintenance costs through OSC’s Clean Diesel Program. Colonial Oil Industries’ pre-treated Eco Supreme product demonstrates up to a 3.5% increase in fuel economy. Districts that participate also receive free monitoring sensors for their fuel tanks.
