For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, leasing revenue increased $119,000 and $236,000, respectively, from 2014 due principally to scheduled increases in rents under both short-term and long-term land leases.  For the three months ended September 30, 2015, leasing expense decreased $9,000 from 2014 due to lower depreciation expense; certain assets became fully depreciated in 2015.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, leasing expense increased $10,000 from 2014 due to an increase in repairs and maintenance at the Steeple Street Building, offset in part by a decrease in depreciation expense due to certain assets becoming fully depreciated in 2015. 

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, petroleum storage facility revenue remained at the 2014 level.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, petroleum storage facility revenue increased $450,000 from 2014 due to Sprague Operating Resources LLC leasing the entire Facility. Under a lease that terminated on April 30, 2014, the Company had leased to Atlantic Trading & Marketing, Inc., a portion of the storage capacity of the Facility. For the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2015, petroleum storage facility expense decreased $44,000 and $220,000, respectively from 2014 due to lower depreciation expense due to certain assets becoming fully depreciation in 2015 and a decrease in repairs and maintenance, offset in part by an increase in payroll and related costs. 

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, general and administrative expense decreased $14,000 due to a decrease in payroll and related costs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, general and administrative expense increased $20,000 due to an increase in payroll and related costs.
