DSS: Energy Assistance - Vendor Information

Energy Assistance - Vendor Information

In response to continued requests from the deliverable fuel industry, the department will 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 31 cents per gallon. 

This year’s 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 31 cents fixed margin:

 New Haven County    $0.355 
 Middlesex County  $0.343
 Hartford County       $0.349
 New London County   $0.352
 Fairfield County        $0.425
 Tolland County         $0.409
 Litchfield County       $0.377
 Windham County        $0.410
