26-239 C.M.R. ch. 100, § 4 - Required Heating Oil Sales

Current through 2022-14, April 6, 2022

A dealer must sell heating oil within its established delivery area to any person who is willing and able to pay cash. The dealer must make this sale even if:

A. the person has not paid for a past sale of heating oil; or
B. the person is not an established customer of the dealer.

This rule also applies if payment is to be made in certified or cashier's check, commercial money order, or their equivalent or if a government or community action agency has guaranteed to pay on behalf of the person the cost of the heating oil sale.

When a person requests 20 gallons or more of heating oil under this rule, the dealer must deliver the oil no later than his next scheduled delivery to the person's neighborhood.


This rule ensures that any person ready and able to pay can receive a hearing oil delivery. Further, by making two cash purchases under this rule, any person can become an established customer of the dealer of his choice and thereby become eligible for all services that dealer provides to his established customer.
