State Fuel System Contract
The State Fuel System Program is one of the most advanced fleet fueling systems of its kind in the entire country. The system takes facilities owned by the State (about 100 sites) and combines their access with retail sites using the same fuel card. This gives the customer over 4,700 fueling stations to choose from in the State of South Carolina. The fuel card has a Wright Express affiliation which also offers coverage throughout the southeast and the entire country. A full listing of retail accepting locations can be viewed by clicking below. The fuel price is based on wholesale fuel prices taken from the Oil Price Information Service (OPIS), a national publisher of gas prices.
In an effort to obtain the best possible pricing, the State has been divided into four (4) zones. Zone pricing will be based on the daily morning wholesale rack average price by product at each terminal. The four zones are listed here and a reference map is included:
o ZONE 1 – Spartanburg Terminal – Counties include: Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, McCormick, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg, and Union.
o ZONE 2: – North Augusta Terminal – Counties include: Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Clarendon, Edgefield, Lee, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda, and Sumter
o ZONE 3: – Charlotte Terminal – Counties include: Chester, Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Fairfield, Florence, Kershaw, Lancaster, Marlboro, and York.
o ZONE 4: – Charleston Terminal – Counties include: Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry, Jasper, Marion and Williamsburg.
Agencies are billed minus Federal excise taxes (available to any state, county or city government). This removes the burden on agencies of filing for excise tax reimbursement. It also allows agencies to be billed the same price for fuel no matter where they refuel, removing the diverse costs of driving miles in order to obtain fuel at the lowest cost.
