For many companies these times of extreme volatility in fuel costs can be very damaging to profitability. We feel as though we are helpless to do anything about it, that only the “big users” have the means to protect themselves from sudden increases in price.  But there are things that you can do that will help you to control fuel costs. Let’s consider the tools we have available.

Price Protection Strategies Should I Hedge?  Consider These 4 Points:

Do increases in fuel prices significantly affect my profitability?


Can I predict approximately the amount of fuel that I will use for a year, job or season?


Is my main goal to provide control to my budgeted costs for the year, job or season?


Does the current price meet my expectations for budgeted cost?








The answers to these questions will tell you whether or not you should consider using a price protection strategy. Please do not confuse these strategies with speculation in the markets. No one knows what direction the markets will go! We simply want to keep our costs from exceeding those which we have used to project future profitability.
