Shop for the best fuel prices.

When you need to refill your oil tank this winter, remember to check home heating oil prices. If you don’t, you just may be throwing money away, and with this economy, you can’t afford to do that.
Few people know that home heating oil prices are set by individual dealers and not by your local government. This means an oil dealer can charge what they think the market will tolerate. It is then up to you to compare oil prices to find the best deal.

If you have a full service dealer, you will have to take into account what that is wroth to you. What does that dealer charge you per gallon? Is there a separate charge for routine maintenance of your furnace? These are things that you will have to take into consideration when comparing fuel prices.

If you don’t have a service contract with a dealer, then you are free to buy oil from anyone. Each time you have about a third of your tank full of oil, you should begin t price compare oil before your next delivery.
