Monthly Price Indices for Asphalt Cement and Fuel

     The following monthly "price indices" have been established by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development for use in making price adjustments for asphalt cement and fuels used in construction contracts. The price indices are shown both in English and Metric systems of measure. Special provisions for payment adjustments for asphalt materials and fuels are included in applicable contracts. A list of past price indices is available by calling (225) 379-1439 for asphalts and (225) 379-1944 for fuels.

     Also, please be advised that we will exclude from the asphalt index calculations any asphalt price quotation that exceeds ±25 percent of the average of all asphalt prices submitted. We believe that by excluding the extreme outliers, the adjusted asphalt price index will be a better indication of pricing trends. (The 25 percent outliers only apply to asphalt quotes and not fuel quotes.)
