Energy Assistance - Winter Heating - Vendor Information


Please follow this link to the 2017/2018 Cumulative Prices 

The department will continue to use information from the Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) to determine the daily Fixed Margin Price, which will be used to pay oil vendors making deliveries to CEAP households. The Fixed Margin Price is based on the daily New Haven Rack Average OPIS price for low sulfur distillate heating oil, plus a fixed margin of 33 cents per gallon.

The Fixed Margin Pricing Program also includes county differentials in the pricing mechanism. The differentials are based on a county-by-county comparison of retail prices. The county differentials are as follows, and include the 33 cents fixed margin:

New Haven County $0.375
 Middlesex County
 Hartford County
 New London County
 Fairfield County
 Tolland County
 Litchfield County
