I feel your pain

From Anderson County:

The county schools contract with bus companies to provide bus service to county schoolchildren. The agreed-upon contract between the school system and contractors allows only a $30,000 supplement each year for increased fuel costs. Because of the jump in diesel prices, the six contractors have already received the full $30,000 allotment with no increase slated for the remainder of the year.

"We're sympathetic with the contractors," Stonecipher said. "(But) we're tight, real tight (on the budget). -- We don't have any place to go (for the money)." from the Oak Ridger

Give them all the sympathy you can.
