There’s no way to predict what will happen with fuel 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 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.)
Fixed price: You lock in a specific price that will not go up, but 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. You will receive a 5¢-per-gallon discount off the market price on the day of your delivery.
If you have a service plan, we can include that cost in your monthly payment plan. These are the basics. Remember, we are always here to answer your questions and give you expert advice.
