Union Braces For Rising Fuel Costs

Jenks, Union budgets brace for inflation impact

Although school will not be in session for another two months, area districts are attempting to prepare for the impact of inflation and rising fuel costs when classes resume in August.

According to data published by AAA, the average cost of a gallon of diesel in the Tulsa area as of Friday was $5.27, an increase of $2.31 per gallon from one year ago.

“Assuming these fuel costs stay up, we will have to set aside some extra money,” Union Chief Financial Officer Trish Williams said. “It will have to come from somewhere else in the budget, but we’re seeing inflation and supply chain disruptions just like every other district.”

As approved Monday night, Union’s preliminary budget includes an additional $95,000 for gasoline and $403,000 for diesel.
