The formula for determining the fuel surcharge is based on the monthly average price of West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil (WTI Average Price), an industry standard for tracking oil prices. The WTI Average Price for a given calendar month is determined by adding the daily WTI prices published in the Wall Street Journal during a calendar month and dividing the result by the number of days so published. The result is rounded to the nearest cent.

 

The fuel surcharge will be 0.3% of the linehaul freight charge for every $1 per barrel, or portion thereof, by which the WTI Average Price exceeds $64. The following schedule provides the new fuel surcharge within the noted WTI Average Price ranges:
