Fuel Fluctuation Clause
**Please see addended Pricing Sheet (Addendum #2) in conjunction with amendment below**
For the purpose of the calculation of allowable gallons for the allocation of fuel, the amount shall be based on actual fuel usage, as mutually agreed between the District and the Contractor.
The Contractor and the District shall meet after the routes have been established at the beginning of each school year to determine the allowable route mileage and the estimated annual fuel allowance by vehicle type. Periodic meetings shall occur throughout the school year to evaluate any route changes and the potential impact on the fuel allowance. Should the Contractor utilize a vehicle to transport children from another district on the same run as one of more Manchester School District students, the District and the Contractor shall agree on a pro rata method for determining the allowable route mileage assessed to the District.
There will be a fuel fluctuation clause based on a base price range of $_______ to $_______ per gallon for gasoline and $_______ to $_______ per gallon for diesel. If the delivery price for fuel used for district work falls below the base price range, the District will receive a credit for the difference in delivery price from the bottom of the range multiplied by the allowed gallons. Should the delivery price for fuel used for district work fall above the price range, the Contractor will receive a credit for the difference in delivery price from the top of the range multiplied by the allowed gallons.
The clause shall be reviewed annually, or as designated by the District and the Contractor. All fuel used to complete the District work shall be counted in this clause.
