Computation and Application of Fuel Related Increase

Fuel Surcharge - How it Works Essential uses the Energy Information Admistration Website (eia.doe.gov) National Average Price for a gallon of diesel fuel as the base for calculating fuel surcharges for LTL components. This price is published on the DOE Internet Site each Monday Evening. The Essential fuel surcharge, when justified by the level of the National Average Price for diesel fuel, will become applicable on the Monday of the posting of the National Average Price on the Deparment of Energy Internet Website. The trigger point Essential will use to start applying a fuel surcharge is $1.15 per gallon. This single price level has been worked into the following easy-to-understand surcharge translation table: The fuel related increase shall be subject to a one cent minimum and shall be as follows:
