Increases in the price of crude oil, diesel fuel and gasoline have affected us all, and in particular, companies like Suburban that deliver their product by truck. These increases have greatly impacted our transportation costs when making fuel deliveries. The Transportation Fuel Surcharge helps us to recover a portion of these transportation costs. As is common practice among companies that deliver product by truck, the Transportation Fuel Surcharge is based on the current price of diesel fuel, and so it may go up or down over time as such price fluctuates. The Transportation Fuel Surcharge is reviewed each month and is clearly itemized on your bill.
