Lower prices for BBQ Tank Refills
At a time when store shelves are bare and supplies are limited, CES has lowered its price to fill BBQ tanks to $12 + tax for a 20lb tank. All our AllGas locations offer refills for tanks up to 100lbs.
Tanks sizes 20 – 40lbs can be transported standing up inside vehicles. Anything over 40lbs must be in a truck or trailer securely fastened standing up right (vertical).
DOT regulations state that you can carry no more than 4 cylinders not to exceed a total of 90lbs in a car or SUV. They must be upright (vertical) and securely fastened. Anything above that amount must be in the bed of a truck or trailer again standing upright and securely fastened.
All tanks must also be within test date. If you look at your tank there is typically a date stamped in the collar of the tank. Your tank must be within 10 years of that date to be filled at one of our locations.
So while your local hardware store may be out of exchange cylinders, your local AllGas location can help you out by filling your in-date BBQ propane tank.

What is a price-cap plan?
When you contract with CES for a “cap-price” for the winter — we spread out your total annual purchased gallons over a “heating curve” based on historical heating ‘degree days’ (measure of outside temperature) over the last four years. We use this data to purchase “call options” from a broker on the NYMEX (New York Mercantile Exchange) for your gallons required over those specific heating months. This call option is really nothing more than insurance that the price will not go ABOVE a set price in the coming winter months.
But can I lose money?
No. If the current retail price of propane gas or fuel oil DROPS — you will always pay that lower price which is our “prompt pay” or COD price. Your real advantage is when the prices INCREASE as they do more years than not when demand for heating fuel increases. With a cap-price, you will never pay more than the price we quoted you when you secured the gallons with a contract. The most you can ever ‘lose’ with a cap plan is the cost of that insurance but when you weigh out the 4 out of 5 years pricing increases, the law of averages show this is a very smart, safe investment saving consumers a fortune.
What is the cost of getting a “CAP PRICE”.
This tends to vary year to year as the markets move up & down and the companies that sell the ‘options’ evaulate their ‘risk’ for the coming year. A cap price can normally be secured for $0.08 – $0.25 per gallon depending on where the market is currently. We can give you a quote anytime actually and encourage consumers to ‘pull the trigger’ for a price when they find it comfortable for the coming year. If a dealer isn’t telling you a cost per gallon or says there isn’t one — they are hopefully building that price into the gallon price but what could be worse — they aren’t actually purchasing any protection for your gallons. Not good and happens all too often by sketchy fuel dealers “playing the market” with your money.

We’ve been hearing about all kinds of offers from competing propane gas or heating oil companies that sound just too good to be true. Most are claiming below going market rates for a fixed term, such as a year or two. When these “introductory” rates expire you are stuck with their “market rate”.
What is their “market rate” and how long of a contract are you tied to? Is it lower than your current rate? Is there a high buy out? Is there a contract amount of fuel you must purchase in order to get the “low” price?
We’ve heard one where they want the existing company to come dig up their buried tank, leave the hole open and they will come and install a new tank where the old one was. First, it’s against code to leave an open hole in the ground. Why would they want another company to do this? Probably because they don’t have the equipment to do it themselves.
What are their fees – delivery fee, invoice & processing fees, energy fees and tank rental? Do they offer 24/7 service when you have a problem with your system? You need to read the small print and ask all the questions. Then determine whether it’s a good deal or not.
Why not just stick with an honest, local family owned & operated company that’s been servicing the area for over 50 years? We offer competitive rates, great service and no tricks or gimmicks. We’ve proven time and time again that when the going gets tough, we’ll be there to serve your home energy needs.
Budget Billing Levelizes Heating Bills
Many home heating customers enjoyed lower than normal heating bills due to the unusually warm winter. The Weather Channel is saying that this might be the warmest winter on record. Let’s face it, this is unusual and it’s highly unlikely to continue.
Combined Energy Services offers a program called Budget / Levelized Billing to help spread the cost of your winter heating bills over the course of the year. The Budget Payment plans are the smart way to heat your home or business. We look at your past heating bills or estimate your consumption and then spread the costs out over the entire year with smaller monthly installments. Our payment plans run for 12 months (May 1 – April 30).
How the program works
Starting in May, you begin making payments. These smaller monthly payments build up a credit in the warmer months. This credit then goes towards paying your higher winter bills. It’s important that you make all of your monthly payments in order to stay enrolled in the program.
What happens if I have a big credit or I’m starting to fall behind?
When the heating season comes to an end, if you have a large credit, we can issue a refund or apply it to your next year’s budget program. If you notice mid-heating season that you are beginning to fall behind, call the office and we will adjust your payment to compensate for the lack of reserve. Your bill will also be adjusted for next season.
Do you have different types of Budget Plans?
Yes, we do! We offer three different budget plans:
Plan A: “Balanced Budget Payment Plan with a “Fixed Price“:
- Your price will be fixed for all gallons consumed for the entire budget season regardless of whether the market price goes up or down.
- You will have 12 even monthly payments.
- There is no fee for this plan.
- Fixed pricing is available for propane only, not fuel oil or kerosene.
Plan B: “Balanced Budget Payment plan with a “Market Price“:
- All deliveries will be billed at the current market rate minus the $0.20 discount.
- This plan uses the local market rate & does not offer any price protection.
- You will have 12 even monthly payments.
- *This plan includes kerosene.
Plan C: “Balanced Budget Payment Plan with a “Capped Price“:
- All deliveries will be at the capped price or the current market price minus the $0.20 discount, whichever is lower.
- There is a cap fee of $0.12 per gallon for propane gas and $0.25 per gallon for fuel oil. The non-refundable cap fee is worked into the budget.
- You will have 12 even monthly payments.
- If your usage remains the same as we’ve estimated for the last 2 years, your payment can only go down!
Please make note of the following:
- The “CAP FEE” is a non-refundable fee for insurance that we charge the customer and pass on to our fuel suppliers. CES does not profit on this fee; we use this fee and buy “Put Option” Insurance on the NYMEX (New York Merchantile Exchange), to protect your gallons. This fee is “Non-Refundable” and will be applied to your account upon enrollment.
- Any credits that you have currently on your account have been taken into consideration when calculating the monthly payment. If for any reason you DO NOT want your credit used toward the plan, please tell one of our customer service representatives.Keep in mind, though, your monthly budget amount may increase by doing so.
- If you currently have a balance on your account, you must pay that balance in full before you can start the Balanced Budget Payment Plan.
- Capped Prices are subject to change daily, call today to find out the current capped price.
