The new Transportation Budget is significantly impactful to RUSH:
- Fuel is our second largest expenditure
- We primarily operate and purchase fuel in Ohio
- We operate diesel and non-diesel vehicles
UPDATED Fuel Surcharge Policy:
To mitigate the impact of the increasing fuel taxes, RUSH will begin calculating our fuel surcharge based on the Department of Energy’s Midwest (PADD2) Average instead of the National Average. We will continue to honor customer specific fuel schedules as previously agreed upon.
Please reach out to your local sales representative or me if you have questions or concerns. We
appreciate your understanding on this matter and appreciate your continued business.
