7/7/2022: Notice regarding a delay in the release of the Weekly Average Diesel Fuel Price by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

  • From June 15th through July 7th, YRC Freight will use $5.718 as provided by the EIA on June 13th
  • Starting July 8th, YRC Freight will update to $5.675 based on the release from the EIA on July 7th
  • We expect the EIA will resume normal weekly updates next week

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

YRC Freight’s fuel surcharge schedule is published within Yellow Tariff 100 Item 700. The schedule is 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 $1.50 per gallon and $7.00 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.
