Buy Heating Oil Early

September 2012

"Previous severe winters show that it is better to stock up before the cold weather sets in, when suppliers have spare delivery capacity."  (John Hayes, Energy Minister)

The Government is backing a campaign by industry and consumer groups urging householders to stock up on heating oil now.

Buying oil as soon as possible before the onset of severe weather can mean a cost saving when demand is low and also means householders are guaranteed fuel during the coldest months.

Householders are also being advised to shop around for the best deal by the Buy Oil Early campaign, which is being run by ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England), Citizens Advice Bureau, Consumer Focus, and FPS (the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers).
