Choosing which heating oil pricing plan is best in a given year can be challenging, since oil prices fluctuate – sometimes significantly – from season to season. But like any buying decision, it pays to be informed about your options so you can choose the plan that’s best for your budget – and your tolerance for risk.

Generally speaking, there are three ways to determine the price that you pay for oil in a pricing plan: market price, fixed price, and price cap.*

Each of these options has its advantages and disadvantages – and much of the decision about which plan is right for you depends on your tolerance for risk. If you’d like help in choosing a plan that’s the right fit for your family, contact us today – we’re happy to talk about it.

Price Cap enrollment is open now – even if your current plan has not expired. Contact us to enroll today!

* Each of these options can also be combined with a pre-buy (for fixed or price cap) or monthly payment plan option – learn about the complete range of our heating oil pricing plans and other buying options here.
