On the 15th of each month, Crowley uses Bunkerworld.com to evaluate the price per metric ton of New York MGO and determine if adjustments should be made to the current Vessel Fuel Charge (Tariff CPRC-602).

As of October 15, the average fuel price over the past 30 days was $757, rising to the $740 – $759 price range tier. This results in an increase in the fuel charges effective November 1, 2018 as follows:
