UNDERSTANDING CAP PRICES A price cap protects you from both rising and falling prices. If you are on our price cap program, no matter how high world oil prices go, your price won’t skyrocket. And if market prices fall, your price comes down too. There is, however, a fee associated with this protection because it has become very expensive to offer this type of insurance. OIL VS.

From safe operation of highly efficient boilers, furnaces, and water heaters to technological advances promoting energy conservation, fuel oil provides an overall value that more than 8 million homes across the country experience.
