Fuel price swings are not uncommon, so Brideau offers you options to ensure you won’t get caught if oil prices spike. Our price protection plans allow you to choose which heating oil price protection option is right for you. These heating payment options will take the unpredictability out of keeping your home warm, even if prices start to go up.
Current price protection options include:
Budget with a price cap
- This option combines our budget pay program with a heating oil price cap. Available for a small fee. This program keeps your fuel price from rising above the agreed-upon cap price, and if the market price of heating oil goes down, your price will drop as well.
- With this option, you purchase your fuel in advance so you are not subject to price spikes. However, you won’t be able to benefit if fuel prices decline.
Prepay with a price cap
- This program adds price protection to the prepay option for an additional fee. If prices go down, you’ll receive a credit for the difference between your cap price and our daily price.
10-day payment plan
- If you pay within 10 days—you will receive a 10¢ per gallon discount on the price of your heating oil, which is the same as our cash price.
