Think about oil
As winter approaches, heating oil is not getting any cheaper in the long term. Bulk buying can help keep heating costs down, as shown by the continuing success of the Brancaster Staithe Oil Cooperative run by Maria Spink.
Below are examples of prices negotiated by the Cooperative during 2018.
|18/01/2018||50.45 pence per litre|
|08/02/2018||44.99 pence per litre|
|01/03/2018||59.99 pence per litre|
|22/03/208||53.50 pence per litre|
|12/04/2018||50.85 pence per litre|
|24/05/2018||50.10 pence per litre|
|14/06/2018||48.00 pence per litre|
|05/07/2018||47.20 pence per litre|
|26/07/2019||47.75 pence per litre|
|16/08/2018||47.00 pence per litre|
|06/09/2018||50.45 pence per litre|
The Coop costs nothing to join and Maria does not charge for her hard work. Co-op members make their payments directly to whichever oil company has agreed to make the deliveries.
