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 choice.
EZ Pay plan with price cap: This is our most popular program. 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.”
Fixed price: You lock in at a specific price that will not go up, but it will not go down, either. No fee is required.
Market price: Your price is not protected and it either falls or rises with the market.
