Fuel-saving commuter competition to begin

Debbie Carter

The eighth annual “Don’t Be Fuelish Competition” begins April 1.

Organizations around Fairbanks will compete until Sept. 30 to see which group of employees can save the most fuel traveling to and from work. Participants may carpool, take the bus, bike, walk or run to work.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service and the Fairbanks North Star Borough are co-sponsoring the competition. Since 2007, competitors have conserved 27,646 gallons of fuel. Sign up and find more information at www.dontbefuelishfairbanks.com.
