Heating oil prices, lock in now?

Unclear perspective, but when input widgets cost more it’s unsurprising for distribution or manufacturing companies to increase the prices charged to customers. Unless, it’s a non-profit or cooperative.

Citing your initial example with a roughly $99 contract fee 2 years ago (residential heating oil then at roughly 20 year low; ~ 1/3 current price):

$99 X 3X higher widget cost = service fee of approx $297 (ballpark your cited $299 current contract fee).

Why wouldn’t Mitchell or any for-profit company cover their higher costs? Reasonably likely, many competitors are passing along their higher costs? Sucks, but not so different than construction, auto manufacturing, semiconductor, etc companies.
