Effective February 2, 2015 YRC has instituted a revised fuel surcharge schedule, published within RDWY 100 Item 700. The schedule is still based on the Energy Information Administration (EIA) National Average Diesel Fuel Index published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy and is available by telephone at 202-586-6966 or on the internet at http://www.eia.doe.gov.

The fuel surcharge range is between $2.00 per gallon and $5.00 per gallon. If diesel fuel prices are outside of this range, YRC will issue a revised fuel surcharge table.

Customers will realize less of a change in the surcharge amount applied as the price of diesel fluctuates. This allows the customer to experience a more modest increase in fuel related costs as the price of diesel climbs.
