The report is designed to provide guidance on the use of fuel futures trading to lock in the price of fuel against volatile changes. While this is a new and different measure to represent a rational and potentially beneficial action for transit operators concerned with rapid changes in fuel price. These measures have applicability in contingency planning to reduce price problems or provide for obtaining necessary fuel supplies in an energy emergency. The report describes the futures market operation in detail and addresses the feasibility of futures market trading in a straight-forward question and answer format. A glossary of market trading terminology is also included.
