FuelMotion is an oil company that owns two oil processing plants that produce gasoline
from crude oil. Their Georgia Plant produces 2 thousand gallons of premium, 1 thousand
gallons of medium, and 6 thousand gallons of regular gasoline every day it operates.
Their Arizona Plant produces 3 thousand gallons of premium, 4 thousand gallons of
medium and 1 thousand gallons of regular gasoline per day of operation. Chevron has
placed an order for 110 thousand gallons of premium, 80 thousand gallons of medium,
and 90 thousand gallons of regular gasoline and has asked for the order to be filled within
30 days. If it costs FuelMotion $10,000 per day to operate the Georgia Plant and $20,000
per day to operate the Arizona Plant, then determine how it can fill Chevron's order at
minimum cost. Note: it may be necessary to produce more gas than demanded, due to the
way the plants operate.
