DEF Tracker: Most Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) prices increased in September reflecting bullish urea prices

Rebecca Hayward - 8 October 2014

The latest edition of DEF Tracker reported that average prices for LTL and tote (refill) Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) deliveries increased in the U.S. and Canada in September in a delayed response to the rise in urea prices in August. Average FTL prices also increased in Canada over the same period.

Tote refill prices in the U.S. continued to move upwards and the national average price increased by $0.02/G in September compared to August. Average LTL deliveries also increased by $0.02/G over the same period, while DEF bulk prices for FTL deliveries remained unchanged in September.

 

DEF prices for bulk deliveries in Canada increased by CA$0.01/L month-on-month for both FTL and LTL formats in September, reversing a three-month period of sliding prices. The average tote refill price also increased by CA$0.01/L.

 

The average pump price in the U.S. stayed at $2.79/G for the sixth consecutive month and with prices firm in 29 states of the 47 states with DEF pumps. In Canada, average pump prices remained at CA$0.80/L, although three provinces (out of 10 provinces and three territories in the sample) saw a CA$0.01/L drop in the average price.

Average 2.5 gallon jug prices decreased by $0.11/G in the U.S. in September and remained stable in Canada after three months of declining prices.
