a select list has 2 parts:
1) Label - what the user sees
2) Value - what is posted with the form

in your list, the label matches what is in the database, but the value does not, for example:

<option value="15.00">Downtown Saint Paul</option>

In this example, the user sees "Downtown Saint Paul", but the value posted with the form is "15.00"

what is happening is that the recordset this creates is:
SELECT * FROM delivery_fee WHERE location = '15.00'

which is not going to return a result

you need to value of the select list to pass the city name:
<option value="Downtown Saint Paul">Downtown Saint Paul</option>

this way the recordset that would be created would be:
SELECT * FROM delivery_fee WHERE location = 'Downtown Saint Paul'

this recordset would return the delivery fee associated with Downtown Saint Paul.

This is a really basic concept in dynamic web development.
