Question: Metro Government Fuel Prices

Louisville Metro Government uses about 600,000 gallons of diesel fuel and about 210,000 gallons of unleaded gasoline a year. The city last month was paying $2.65 a gallon for unleaded gasoline and $3.02 a gallon for diesel fuel. Through a contract with Thornton Oil, the city gets a discounted rate per gallon and doesn’t have to pay gasoline tax.

Question: Does anyone know what the city is currently paying for gasoline and diesel, and how much money is being saved by the sharp drop in fuel prices? This equation must affect the city's budget, and since the savings is substantial, we need to know the cost.
