Two years ago I signed a contract with an oil company for oil delivery. In the contract was an included 5 year service contract as well. Each year the price of my oil was supposed to be locked in and a new contract for that price should have been sent to me. I did not receive any contract the second year but used the company without locking in a price. For my third year I decided to change companies. I always paid for all the deliveries I had in the past and I never used the service contract at all. They never even came to clean my burner. Now they want to sue me for $6000.00 for breach of contract. Can they do that? I have already paid for everything that they have given me and the service contract was never used. I have worked with other oil companies before and changed before the service contract was up. I never had a problem like this before.
