2022 Oil Company Pricing Research

Updated 8/2/2022 with Green Energy info from their website.


  • These price quotes listed below were obtained or were effective as of July 18, 2022.
  • As you know, oil pricing has been volatile and thus the price on any delivery date could be higher or lower.
  • Once we determine which oil company for the group, we will submit your name and contact information, with your permission, to that selected oil company. From that point on, each household will establish their own independent business relationship with the oil company.
