Heating oil price

Here are the last three months’ worth of UK average heating oil prices from boilerjuice.com. The graph is no substitute for a quote from your favourite supplier, but it’s useful to see in which direction prices are heading.

Here is the trend over the last three years:

Save money through bulk buying

The Brancaster Staithe Oil Cooperative helps to keep oil prices down through bulk buying – often more than 70,000 litres at a time.

Organiser Maria Spink has around 15 Stanhoe members but is always keen to expand. To get on the mailing list, contact her at brancasterstaitheoil@hotmail.com or phone 01485 210155.

Maria places an order every three weeks, choosing the cheapest supplier from half a dozen local companies. She usually shaves a penny or so off the lowest “standard” price, and comes in at least 5 p/litre below the highest quoted price (which is what you might be paying if you don’t shop around).

Maria’s service is free of charge, and customers pay the oil companies directly.

For more details see our news story.

Compare the costs of different fuels

This fuel cost comparison from Nottingham Energy Partnership shows the current cost per kWh of various fuels. There are also some excellent links to other fuel price comparison sites.

As of October 2015 oil (kerosine) was just 3.51 p/kWh – cheaper than mains gas, which is 4.10 p/kWh.
