Does EIA publish off-road diesel fuel prices?
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) does not publish prices specifically for off-road diesel fuel, also known as non-road or off-highway diesel fuel.
Off-road diesel fuel is sold for use in equipment and vehicles that are not usually operated on public roadways, such as equipment and vehicles used on farms and railways, in construction, and for electric power generation. Off-road diesel fuel is not subject to state and federal excise taxes that are applied to the retail sales of diesel fuel sold for vehicles generally operated on public roadways. Off-road diesel fuel is dyed red (as is heating oil) to distinguish it from on-highway diesel fuel.
Since December 2010, all retail on-highway diesel fuel is ultra-low sulfur diesel.
