DEF Tracker: U.S. pump prices for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) stable

Fabricio Cardoso - 4 July 2013

On June 26, 2013, Integer Research published the June edition of the DEF Tracker, confirming that DEF pump prices have remained stable at US$2.79/G in the U.S. since November 2012 and at CA$0.80/L in Canada since October 2011, when the first bulk facility was installed.

In June, 49 new truck stop locations were added to the U.S. DEF network, which now covers 44 out of 50 states.  DEF Tracker, published at the end of the month based on trades made during the month, reported minimum and average prices for Full Truck Load and Less than Full Truck Load bulk DEF deliveries, tote refills and 2.5 gallon jugs in 15 regional Metropolitan State Areas (MSAs) in the United States and three in Canada.

The U.S. national average for bulk deliveries to clients with permanent storage facilities (less than full truck load) increased by six cents per gallon from May to June, while in Canada the average price per litre was three cents smaller than in the previous month. On the other hand, tote refill prices slightly decreased in both U.S. and Canada.

Regarding DEF packaged sales, the highest average prices for 2.5G jugs in the U.S. in June were found in Los Angeles and Tampa. Seattle and Portland posted the lowest average values in the same period. In Canada, jug prices in Toronto were higher than in Montreal and Calgary.
