Vineyard Gazette: A town fuel dock that debuted this summer has far exceeded the expectations of the Oak Bluffs [on Martha’s Vineyard] officials who pushed for it. The fuel dock sold about twice as much fuel as predicted.

The town set conservative estimates for the facility, which was installed last spring beside the harbormaster’s shack, predicting that in the first year the facility would dispense 40,000 gallons. In fact, they sold more than 81,000 gallons from late June to mid October.
