It caused over 50 deaths and an estimated $30-60 billion in damage. Michael, which came ashore along the Florida panhandle in October, was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall in the contiguous U.S., causing at least 45 deaths and an estimated $30 billion in damage.

Downsizing, rightsizing, preventative maintenance, telematics, and fleet fuel cards are just a few of the various strategies that can help combat price instability and control fuel costs. While all of these can be beneficial, one thing they don’t address is the actual price of fuel. However, a fuel hedging strategy does.
