Everywhere you look these days, prices are going up. However, energy prices are surging faster than they have in years. U.S. oil prices recently reached their highest level in over a decade, and wholesale propane prices have hit their highest weekly average levels in seven years.
Many factors contribute to energy price increases like these, including global supply and demand, geopolitical events and even the weather. It’s important to note that these factors affect almost all forms of energy. Because the electric grid relies on gas-fired power plants, electricity costs are surging as well.
We know how badly rising prices affect our customers, and we want to do everything we can to help.
Firstly, we want to assure you that Dixon Energy continues to have an ample supply of fuel for our customers. We will continue to be able to deliver propane and heating oil promptly when you need it — even if our competitors can’t.
Also, please know that we will be as relieved as you when energy prices go down. Contrary to what some people think, small fuel distributors like us don’t make more money when rates increase. We make less.
Please get in touch with us as soon as possible if you are having trouble with your bills. We’re normally able to work with customers who reach out to us early before falling behind.
We can also help you find ways to reduce your overall energy use at home. While none of us know precisely when energy rates will go down, these actions can bring down your bill totals:
These are just a few actions you can take to reduce your fuel use without sacrificing comfort. Rest assured, we are always available to help you reduce your energy costs and handle payments more efficiently.
As always, thank you for your understanding and loyalty during these challenging times, and don’t hesitate to reach out it us.
