    (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection:

Form EIA-888, On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price Survey

    EIA is proposing to collect annual sales volumes of on-highway 
diesel fuel on Form EIA-888, On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price Survey. This 
survey collects weekly retail on-highway diesel fuel prices from a 
sample of truck stops and service stations and publishes price 
estimates at various regional levels and the State of California. EIA 
is updating its frame of retail diesel fuel outlets and proposing to 
redesign the sample of retail outlets using a new sample design. The 
new sample will replace the current sample that reports on Form EIA-
888. EIA will continue to use Form EIA-888, Schedule A to collect 
weekly prices from the new sample and will use the new Form EIA-888, 
Schedule B to collect annual sales volume information and station 
characteristics that will be used to determine eligibility and size. 
EIA will use annual sales volumes of on-highway diesel fuel to 
determine the measure of size used for weighting data reported by the 
outlets selected in the new sample and are collected one time from 
newly sampled outlets.

Form EIA-878, Motor Gasoline Price Survey

    EIA proposes to modify Schedule B of Form EIA-878, Motor Gasoline 
Price Survey to further clarify the collection of gasoline octane 
levels and ethanol content by grade for annual gasoline sales volumes. 
These volumes are used to determine a measure of size used for 
weighting data reported by the sampled outlets and are collected one 
time from newly sampled outlets.

Form EIA-877, Winter Heating Fuels Telephone Survey

    EIA proposes to collect residential heating oil and propane prices 
on a monthly basis during the off-heating season (April to September) 
beginning April 2023 on Form EIA-877, Winter Heating Fuels Telephone 
Survey. This survey collects weekly residential heating oil and propane 
prices during the heating season, October to March, from a sample of 
retail outlets that sell these heating fuels. EIA receives many 
requests for EIA-877 summer prices each year because many heating oil 
and propane customers fill their tanks before the winter heating season 
starts, when prices are generally lower than during the winter months. 
Collecting monthly prices during the summer will meet the needs of 
these customers, as well as provide a data series for more 
comprehensive EIA analysis on these markets.
    (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 22,516;
    (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 196,032;
    (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 63,226;
    (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: 
$5,162,403 (63,226 annual burden hours multiplied by $81.65 per hour). 
EIA estimates that respondents will have no additional costs associated 
with the surveys other than the burden hours and the maintenance of the 
information during the normal course of business. Comments are invited 
on whether or not: (a) The proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of agency functions, including 
whether the information will have a practical utility; (b) EIA's 
estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used, is 
accurate; (c) EIA can improve the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information it will collect; and (d) EIA can minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on respondents, such as automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology.
