The city used 36,206 gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel in December 2008, according to Mayor Art Ward.
He said the city used just 19,711 last month, a rather stunning drop.
The mayor credited more conservation among departments and employees. But, wow, that's quite a change.
I'll see if I can get more complete data for the year soon.
