Why does Ray’s charge a fuel surcharge?
Ray’s bases our fuel surcharge (FSC) on the Department of Energy Index for the Midwest. Ray’s was very slow to implement a FSC when diesel prices rose and managed to avoid a FSC until 2010. The FSC that has been implemented does NOT cover the entire cost of fuel. This small portion only allows Ray’s to continue offering our customers the most competitive pricing possible without compromising service. Ray’s continues to monitor the ever fluctuating fuel prices and adjust as needed.
