Trucking Advantage announced it will release the PocketFuelCal app for iPhone, offering a quick method to calculate fuel surcharges.

According to the Department of Energy, the average price of diesel in the U.S. costs 47 cents more than at this same time last year. Transportation businesses typically incur a fuel surcharge to recoup their losses attributed to these price increases.

"Truckers, drivers, shippers, and business travelers around the world will appreciate the simplicity and flexibility of this app, as it provides an efficient means to protect their profits," according to Trucking Advantage.
