US National Fuel Surcharge Change

The price of fuel has been highly unpredictable over the last year. During that time span, we have received several requests from customers for forecasted fuel prices. It seems volatility of fuel pricing has made it difficult for our customers to predict transportation costs for materials and finished goods. Unfortunately we have found it difficult to find reliable forecasting under the Midwest Regional Index that we currently use.


Effective July 28, 2015, Sutton Transport will determine its fuel surcharge off of the US National Average Index as published by the U.S. Department of Energy. This index is compiled by the DOE and published every Monday afternoon. This information can be found on the DOE’s website at: The benefit of making this change is the Energy Information Administration maintains a tool called the "Short Term Energy Outlook.” This outlook forecasts average fuel prices for up to two years from the present time. The STEO is published monthly by the EIA and can be found at:


Please feel free to contact us for more information regarding the advantages of the new index.
