Fuel Surcharge Information
In May of 2005 Action Expediting instituted a Fuel Surcharge program to offset the ever-fluctuating cost of diesel fuel . The surcharge will remain in effect as long as the U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index remains above $1.25 per gallon.
The level of the fuel surcharge is adjusted on Wednesday based upon the U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index of the prior Tuesday. This index, published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy, is available by telephone at
202-586-6966 and on their web site.
The national average cost for diesel fuel for the
week of September 11, 2017 is posted at
$2.802 per gallon.
