Oakland Oil & Propane offers a budget plan that may help some customers to better plan their fuel expenses. By providing a bank account to draft the budget payment each month, the customer pays over the course of the year for their fuel instead of paying large sums for each individual delivery. The budget plan year starts June 1st and ends May 1st, allowing the customer to spread out their expected fuel consumption into monthly payments over up to 11 months. All budget plans are reconciled in the month of May each year and are adjusted for the customer’s fuel consumption history, the estimated average price of fuel over the next year, and the customer’s current account situation. Set up your budget plan in June or July to best take advantage of this program.
Please note that no customers may start a budget plan between January 1st and April 30th. All budget plan payments are debited on or about the 15th day of each month. Customers who are in good standing with their budget plan may also be eligible for automatic delivery. Give us a call for more details and to receive your budget plan estimate today!
