To Our Valued Customers

April 2017 – The basis of the fuel surcharge is the Department of Energy price index for California U.S. On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices and can be found at: www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/. The fuel surcharge will be indexed monthly from a base of $3.00/gal. On the first Monday of each month the average of the previous week’s fuel cost will be used to calculate the current month’s fuel surcharge. For every $0.05 in fuel increase over the $3.00 base Central will charge a surcharge of $0.125/cyd. This fuel surcharge index will be updated and posted on our company website with the current fuel surcharge rate for the current month and will be highlighted as shown on the chart below.
