Had 700 litres delivered by Highland Fuels yesterday. 57.53p per litre, total 422.85 including 20.14 VAT. Not bad considering the tanker has to come across from Kirkwall on the ferry (the company usually waits until they have several deliveries to make)

1,400 litres of oil at 48p a litre - check

27 builders dumpy bags of logs split, stacked and stored - check.

2 dozen bags of smokeless - check.

A freezer filled to the brim and a full wine rack - checked and quality controlled.

All I need now is to be snowed in for months and we'll be fine.

Probably unknown to you Aussie types given your Winters are the equivalent of a European summer.

I understand we're in for a heatwave, thanks to that!

Result! Well....

.....I was quoted 52.9 +VAT/lt about 20 mins ago, but after a bit of a chat and quoting from the graph/price in C16's post got it for 50.5+VAT! Not quite as good as C16, but better.

The wine cellar will need restocking regardless of the weather

Hmmm. From the BBC today:
The Australian state of New South Wales has been battered by a massive storm which has left thousands of homes without power...


But at least the (female) kangaroos can stuff their cold paws down into their front pocket in innocence (the creamy-white stuff in the photo above being snow)...

Thanks chaps. Some good prices there, compared to the last couple of years.

Yes B&T's, we're in the same location. I may try Lovells, they are local...

Time to resurrect the thread.

Contemplating whether to buy heating oil now...or wait. Given the interesting situation the UK finds itself in at the moment regarding energy prices, for those with a crystal balli, what are you thoughts on whether the prices are heading north or south? Higher, lower, (a bit like 'Play Your Cards Right').

Yesterday it was 46p (per litre)

Feb 21 was 44.4 ppl
Dec 20 was 37.0 ppl
May 20 was 23.6
Apr 20 was 32.0
Feb 20 was 47.0
Oct 19 was 46.1

Any thoughts? We can only have a small lorry, so unfortunately cannot take advantage of discounts when ordering together with other people nearby.

Just checked my bank statement. 800 litres on 23/8 at 43.875p inc vat. My usual local supplier. Promised delivery within ten days, came the next morning.

Yes, it looks as though the prices are slowly heading north.

Lowest price we paid last year was an unbelievably low 18p/litre through Boilerjuice.
Not quite so low now, have a horrible feeling it will be one of those years coming up when I wince each time I have to order.

We got to 32p last year, sods law, we always need oil as the price increases!

The one and only time I have ever guessed correctly that the lowest point on the price graph had been reached and had enough room in our small tank to warrant placing an order.
Pure luck, no skill or knowledge involved.

We have a village based oil syndicate run by a volunteer. By all accounts they do quite well. I cannot take advantage though as I use liquid gas. My supply contract is locked in at 32p a litre. Fortunately, I have 4000 litres at present which should last 2 to 3 years with luck. Hopefully, by then events will have moved on, otherwise it is back to the log burner and the solar hot water panel.

just ordered a 'fill it up' it's 46.8 ppl at the moment. We only have a small tank (can't remember if 1200 or 1300 litre), so should do us for a good while. Can't see the price dropping too much now over autumn/winter.
