Over the last three seasons, Co-op
members saved more than $300,000 on their heating bills. We
can produce these savings because, unlike other heating fuel companies,
we operate on a fixed margin - currently just 35 cents per gallon.
This means that each day we set our prices at just 35 cents per
gallon above our fuel costs. Because fuel costs fluctuate daily,
and because our competitors sometimes lower their margins, we won't
always have the lowest prices out there. By and large, however,
Co-op members can expect to save enough on their heating bills each
year to pay for their $24 membership fee several times over.
