A Safeguard against volatile heating oil prices
Choosing a price protection plan is not an exact science. There’s no way to predict what will happen with oil prices, so there’s no way to know for sure which price plan will offer you the best protection in a given season. But understanding your options can help you feel better about your choices. Here’s what we offer:
- EZ Pay plan with price cap: You spread your fuel costs out over 10 or 12 months, and you pay either your capped price or the market price on the day of your delivery—whichever price is lower. A fee is required to cover this “downside protection.” (The fee is factored into your monthly payment.) EZ Pay customers with price protection also get the convenience of automatic deliveries.
Note: you can also enroll in EZ Pay without the Price Cap. Read more here.
- Prepay fixed price: You purchase your fuel in advance and lock in at a specific price that will not go up, but will not go down, either. No fee is required.
- Market price (Pay as you go): Your price is not protected and it either falls or rises with the market.
