There’s no denying that we’re in the middle of tough economic times. Inflation is at its highest rate in 40 years. We’re still contending with pandemic-related supply chain shortages, and global conflicts have sent all energy prices into record territory.
Unfortunately, heating oil and propane prices have not been immune to these price spikes. We know how painful this is for our customers, and we hope that prices drop soon. In the meantime, we’re looking for ways to make these volatile economic times a little easier. One thing we know will help is enrolling in our monthly Budget Plan.
When you enroll in a monthly Budget Plan, you don’t pay for your fuel at delivery. Instead, we calculate how much fuel you will likely use over the year. Then, we spread out your costs in 12 predictable installments.
Woodruff Energy Budget Plans are available for both heating oil and propane. They run from July to June.
Spreading out your payments with our Budget Plan always made sense. Now, with prices so high, it feels essential.
When customers pay in full for fuel on delivery, they generally are hit with several large bills in the fall and winter. These huge expenses fall at the worst times — during the holiday season and when income tax filing is due.
A budget removes uncertainty about monthly payments. When you divide your costs evenly, your winter expenses are cut in half.
And don’t worry — if prices drop and stay lower, we can adjust your plan accordingly. In the end, you only pay the cost of the fuel you receive at the market price on the days it’s delivered — not a cent more.
Need another reason to enroll? All Budget Plan customers receive a discount of 5 cents a gallon!
We hope you’ll consider enrolling in a monthly budget. Pretty much everyone who participates likes it much better than paying in full for each delivery, especially with fuel prices so high. Get in touch to enroll today!
