West Virginia Looks to Make Fleet More Efficient

June 25, 2008

WHEELING, WV – West Virginia state employees are being asked to think about saving money on gasoline when they travel on official business. Instead of taking their own vehicles and being reimbursed at the rate of 50.5 cents per mile traveled, they are being asked to consider rental cars or state vehicles, according to www.news-register.net.

That could save money for taxpayers, depending on what state vehicle is chosen. Picking a small economy car out of the state fleet could shave a few dollars off the cost of a trip on official business. However, selecting a gas-guzzling SUV or a full-sized van could mean that the trip actually costs more.
