They all get to buy locking fuel oil caps or park car over tank fill except when COD oil guy is called
It's the same people who will take the gas company's offer of a free gas-only boiler, where there's only one source (and one price). Just twist the dial and not think about it. Going out in the cold to stick the tank? Oh the horror....
I've never seen one of the lock-in contracts. Is there a clause/penalty for buying fuel oil from another source, or not taking less than X gallons per month?
