Energy Assistance - Winter Heating - Vendor Information


Please follow this link to the 2019/2020 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 35 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 35 cents fixed margin:

New Haven County


Middlesex County


Hartford County


New London County


Fairfield County


Tolland County


Litchfield County
