How much jet fuel does the SSA take to the Vineyard airport each year?

“We have 700,000 gallons of fuel that we get every single year, the majority of that is during the season, that comes over in 88 trucks, and if those trucks aren’t delivered then we can’t fly, and if we can’t fly, your impact becomes our impact,” said Peter Wharton of Oak Bluffs, who is an airport commissioner.
