As the name suggests, the fixed-price plan entails pre-purchasing oil now for the winter season at a set price. The oil will be delivered (with no additional charge) at the set price, as needed, between October 1 and March 31.
To calculate the estimated cost of the fixed-price plan, multiply the cost of oil per gallon by the average amount of oil used during a season. For example, $3.99 per gallon x 800 gallons (average usage) = $3,192.00 for the one winter season. The total cost must be paid in full within 10 days of signing the contract.
