Argus Asphalt Report

An Argus market service, published weekly

As the leading publication in asphalt assessments, the Argus Asphalt Report offers an international perspective on the markets. Historical prices are available dating back to 1998, facilitating charting and analysis of long-term trends.

The Argus Asphalt Report discusses the impact of crude oil prices and light-heavy crude differentials on refiner decisions to produce asphalt. The service also provides alternative economic calculations that help users understand the economics that drive the production and trade of asphalt. These economics include asphalt's high-sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) alternative values, HSFO arbitrage calculations and asphaltic crude breakeven.
