Love’s and Pilot increase DEF pump price by $0.10 per gallon

Christopher Goodfellow - 11 May 2012

Love's Travel Stops and Pilot Flying J truck stop chains have implemented a US $0.10 per gallon increase in the price of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at the pump. Between them the two chains account for 82% of the total bulk DEF pump network in North America.
Love's increased the price of DEF at the pump by $0.10 per gallon, effective May 7, 2012. Love's continues to operate a two-tier pricing strategy: stores previously stocking DEF at the pump for $2.59 per gallon have increased the price to $2.69, and those who sold it at $2.79 have increased the price to $2.89. At the end of April, 2012, Love's operated 127 locations with bulk DEF at the pump, accounting for 27% of the entire North American network.
Pilot has also increased the price of DEF at the pump by $0.10 per gallon. Pilot has 258 locations offering bulk DEF at the pump, accounting for 55% of the network.
This follows Kost USA's announcement of a $0.21 per gallon increase in the price of DEF, one of a number of price increases by national DEF distributors.
In recent months the price of urea, the raw material for DEF, has increased.
