SANDWICH — Unleaded gasoline and soy diesel fuel will cost 2 cents less per gallon for Sandwich school buses and other vehicles in 2013-2014 than for the present school year.

School district officials noted that every penny counts when the district uses 35,000 gallons of diesel and 3,000 gallons of gasoline during the year.

The Sandwich School Board has voted to accept the low bid from Elburn Co-op at $3.065 a gallon for 87-octane unleaded gasoline and $3.524 a gallon for soy diesel.

The school pays out as deliveries of fuel are made to the bus barn at 309 E. Hall St.
