Why is Republic adding a fuel charge to my invoice?

Per our community contract with Republic, they may add a fuel surcharge when diesel fuel in our area reaches an average of $4 per gallon or more over a three-month period. Diesel fuel has been increasing over the past several months and is averaging more than $4/gallon.  Fuel surcharge clauses are typical in fleet-based services.
