Troup County, Ga., is starting a six-month trial period to see if using fleet fuel cards to replace its outdated county fuel center will result in cost savings, The Times-News reported.

The retail cost of gasoline is higher, but using fuel cards would save time and the fuel cost of driving to the fuel center, as well as not having to spend half a million dollars to replace the fuel center. The county’s fuel system has not been running properly for the past couple of years, forcing employees to resort to using paper logs to track fuel.
