The energy surcharge calculation is tied directly to the national average price of diesel fuel as reported weekly by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy (EIA/DOE) in its Weekly Retail On-Highway Diesel Prices Index. This index is objective, publicly available, and widely recognized in the trucking and transportation industries. This ensures that you, our valued customer, will pay a fuel surcharge that is currently adjusted, easy to calculate, and equitable to you and to Liquid Environmental Solutions.
The EIA/DOE average is published each Monday. Liquid Environmental Solutions will use the published average from the last Monday of every month to calculate the energy charge for the following month. Liquid Environmental Solutions’ surcharge tables show what the energy surcharge, as a percentage of your monthly or other periodic invoice charges, before taxes, would be based upon the last reported EIA/DOE national diesel price index prior to your invoice date.
