SOUTH CENTRAL FS AND EFFINGHAM CLAY FS MERGE

The merger of South Central FS and Effingham Clay FS has been approved by both boards and the new entity will be serving nine counties. We spoke with South Central General Manager Byron Sikma who said shareholders of both South Central FS and Effingham Clay FS companies concluded their meeting and agreed to merge the two companies into one single organization named South Central FS.  This merger becomes effective October 1.  Bond, Fayette, Clay, and Effingham counties are among the nine counties receiving coverage from the larger South Central FS.  Although there will undoubtedly be some transition during the joining of the two companies, Sikma said their ultimate goal is to maintain and even improve customer service as customers continue to be their number one priority.  They intend to adhere to a recent motto, “Same product, same services, same people.”  South Central FS recently celebrated their 75th anniversary, and believe this is an excellent opportunity to position themselves for a bright future.


GAS PRICES FALLING

Gas prices are falling.  Illinois drivers are paying at least 13 cents less than they were last week.  Monday morning, the national average was $3.52 per gallon, compared to $3.77 last week.  The average price for the state is $3.64.  In Greenville, the average price for unleaded gas Tuesday morning is $3.39 per gallon. Many believe gas prices are lower due to concerns the global economy is headed for recession.  Oil fell to $79.85 per barrel Friday, a drop of nine percent for the week, after hitting a three-year high of $113.93 in April.
