BNSF Mechanical Reefer Fuel Supplement Charge for January 2020

BNSF's mechanical reefer fuel supplement charge is based on the U.S. average retail on-highway diesel fuel (HDF) price from two months prior. In November 2019, the reported monthly average was $3.069 per gallon, which is 0.016 cents per gallon more than the previous month.

Accordingly, the
BNSF reefer supplement charge in January will be:

$0.16/mile, as provided in Item 6045 ($3.00 strike price) of BNSF Rules Book 6100-B.

As a reminder, the mileage-based reefer supplement charge for December will be $0.16/mile.

The source for the price of HDF is the U.S. Department of Energy's Retail On-Highway Diesel Prices

For information about the fuel supplement charge and how it is calculated, see our BNSF Rules Book 6100-B.
