Rack Plus will fluctuate depending upon wholesale cost and market conditions. Rack Plus pricing allows you to take advantage of lower heating fuel prices if prices drop during the heating season and does not require you to pre-buy your fuel. There is a possibility at times our Rack Plus price could be the same as the provider’s retail price* or more. We cannot guarantee the Rack Plus price will always be lower than the retail price. Pricing does not include taxes or shipping costs.
Fuel dealers offering Rack Plus pricing: Barrows and Fisher Oil Co., Energy Co-op of Vermont, Irving Oil and Trono Fuels.

Laid in Cost is the wholesale fuel cost plus shipping and includes any applicable taxes.
Fuel dealers offering Laid in Cost pricing: Suburban Propane.

Discount off Retail is the retail price* less the discounted amount.
Fuel dealers offering Discount off Retail pricing: Bourne’s Energy and BARROW’S AND FISHER OIL CO.

Fixed pricing is offered by some VHeat dealers and is subject to availability. Before enrolling in VHeat, please contact your selected fuel dealer directly to lock in a fixed fuel price, and be sure to tell them you are a VHeat member in order to receive the negotiated discount. Some fuel dealers require customers to pre-buy their estimated seasonal amount at the beginning of the heating season.
Fuel dealers offering Fixed pricing: Irving Oil.

* Retail price is the price quoted by a fuel dealer on any given day, without taking any discounts or program deals into account.
