TORONTO, Ont. — Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) prices remained steady at the pump in October, at 80 cents per litre, while costs of totes and bulk deliveries are on the decline.
The October issue of DEF Tracker provided updates on the North American DEF market, including pricing in every US state and Canadian province.
In the US, pump prices went up four cents per gallon between September and October, to US$2.80/G. That’s the second highest average pump price in the past 12 months, DEF Tracker reports. Canada’s pump price average of 80 cents per litre is consistent with previous months.
Also over the past 30 days, 77 new locations in North America began offering DEF at the pump.
Christopher Goodfellow, North American emissions analyst at Integer Research, said “Reductions in raw material costs and moves by distributors to capture market share have caused Diesel Exhaust Fluid prices to decrease in tote refill, and FTL and LTL bulk delivery modes during October.”
