Posted On: 20-12-2013 By: Jon Raeside

The December issue of DEF Tracker was recently published.

DEF Tracker contains the latest DEF pricing updates from emissions control industry experts. News from the latest issue includes:

  • The national average for tote refill prices decreased by one cent in the U.S. to $1.87/G and increased by one cent in Canada to CA$0.55/L during December compared with the previous month.
  • Multi-drop (LTL) average prices have remained stable in both the United States and Canada at $1.80/G and CA$0.52/L respectively in December 2013 compared with the previous month.
  • The national DEF truck stop average price remained stable at $2.79/G in the U.S. This has been the average price since November 2012. In Canada, this price has also remained unchanged at CA$0.80/L since October 2011.
  • Atlanta, GA, Nashville, TN and St. Louis, MO posted the lowest average prices for tote refills, while the highest average prices for totes and for the other delivery modes were found in MSAs in the Central & Southern region.

The publication now covers 21 regional hubs in the United States (Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Charlotte, NC; Chicago, IL; Cincinnati, OH; Dallas, TX; Denver, CO; Detroit, MI; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Memphis, TN; Nashville, TN; New York, NY; Oklahoma City, OK; Phoenix, AZ; Portland, OR; Salt Lake City, UT; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO and Tampa, FL) and three hubs in Canada (Calgary, AB; Montreal, QC; and Toronto, ON).
