Connecticut Bulk Fuel Discount

Connecticut Bulk Fuel Discount

  • The statewide fixed margin oil discount program started out as a pilot in 1990 in one county; after expanding steadily each year it is now statewide. A predetermined amount is allowed to be added to the wholesale price of fuel oil for resale to LIHEAP recipients. The program pays participating vendors the margin price or their retail price, whichever is lower. Vendors must put their regular retail price on all delivery tickets. The local administering agency or the state calculates the fixed margin price.

    In FY 2008, Connecticut added a discount off retail option under which vendors making deliveries of oil and/or kerosene to LIHEAP households were paid based on their daily retail price at the time of delivery, less a per gallon discount.
