PEI has adopted a fuel surcharge calculation method based on the fuel prices published weekly by the U.S. Department of Energy. This method more closely links the fuel surcharges to prevailing market prices for diesel fuel, and should help PEI and its customers respond more quickly to changes in fuel prices in the marketplace.
We will adjust the surcharge on a weekly basis, based on the national average fuel price posted by the U.S. Department of Energy each Monday. The effective periods will be from Monday in the succeeding week through the following Sunday. The surcharge percentage will be reflected on your PEI invoice.
Fuel Surcharge Table (Prices per gallon)
Fuel surcharge percentages and associated trigger points are subject to change without notice. See below Terms and Conditions for more details. If the average of the national U.S. on-highway average price for a gallon of diesel fuel rises above $5.00, the fuel surcharge continues to increase 0.5% for every $0.05 increase in fuel price.
The prices in these indexes are published by the U.S. Department of Energy and can be accessed via the web at http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/. PEI is not responsible for the information provided.
