Where Can You Find Fuel Rack Pricing Information?

Historical fuel rack prices from 1994 onward are available from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and current daily rack rates are available by subscription from companies such as the Oil Price Information Service and the Energy Management Institute. Daily fuel rack prices in Canada are available on the Petro-Canada website.

The rack price is the wholesale price paid for fuel at a bulk distribution terminal - the rack - where tanker trucks or other cargo transports are filled prior to distribution to retail outlets, according to the California Energy Commission. Fuel rack prices differ according to the geographical location of the terminal.
