Integer Research has launched a monthly Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) price reporting service called DEF Tracker. The service has been launched in response to requests from industry stakeholders and is a reflection of increasing trading activity and more frequent contract settlements in the DEF market.
DEF Tracker includes DEF price benchmarks and in-depth analysis of market movements. Price references cover DEF delivered in tote, bulk and 2.5 gallon jug formats in six major metropolitan areas: Los Angeles, CA; Houston, TX; New York, NY; Cincinnati, OH; Chicago, IL; and Toronto, ONT.
In addition, DEF Tracker provides DEF pump pricing at truck stops and a number of locations in every U.S. state and Canadian province offering the facility.
In November, the average price of DEF at the pump reached $2.73 per gallon across the U.S., according to DEF Tracker. The price at the pump fell in 25, or 58%, of the 43 U.S. states offering the facility between October and November, however, the average across the country increased by three cents per gallon.
There are now four truck stops offering DEF at the pump in Canada, all operated by Pilot Flying J. The price at these locations was CAD$0.80 per liter in November.
