I would recommend you take a look at my Business::Shipping module, which
features an online (UPS Online Tools) and offline mode of operation.  The
offline mode is much faster, obviously, but you have run the "update fuel
surcharge" script once per month from cron, and I release new data modules
for it every year coinciding with UPS.
