Fuel Surcharge Notice

LSO™ adopted an index-based fuel surcharge in 2002. It was calculated monthly prior to 1/1/2018 and weekly thereafter. Future fuel surcharges will be posted approximately two weeks in advance, with the effective date on Monday of each week. The express surcharge is based on a rounded average of the U.S. Gulf Coast spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel reported by the U.S. Department of Energy for the week that is two weeks prior to the adjustment. The ground surcharge will be based on a rounded average of the on highway average price for a gallon of diesel fuel as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy for the week that is two weeks prior to the adjustment. See the following table for the fuel surcharge details:
