* The combined purchasing power of all our members attracts full-service dealers to sell oil to our co-op members—these are NOT "discount” dealers
* Our participating dealers agree to charge our members a low, fixed profit margin over their wholesale costs
* Our contracts prevent dealers from arbitrarily increasing this profit margin to take unfair advantage of wholesale price changes
* When wholesale prices go down, so do prices for our co-op members
* All our participating dealers provide full maintenance and emergency services, and have served area customers for many years
