USA Sanctions - Knock On
The US Trump administration has recently imposed new sanctions upon Iran and with that he demanded that petroleum cash flow to Iran from China be choked.

Heating Oil v. Global Environment
BBC News published an article recently, explaining the current geopolitical problems around the world and how they are making the oil prices rise continually it seems. This past weekend, we saw another upward spike of prices of crude oil and this has again had a knock on effect for heating oil, unfortunately. If you're worried that the prices are going to rise further, it may be a good idea to stock up now, prior to the winter which normally sees heating oil price trends rise without any outside factors. Check out our prices and order now if you like, using the Instant Quote box shown above.

Spike and Correction
Ultimately, whenever there's a spike in the crude oil market down or up it will usually experience a correction shortly afterwards, once the markets have found their feet with new information. Recently, OPEC (the Organisation for Petroleum Exporting Countries) announced that a deal was in the works that would eventually cut global production. This caused prices to rise, however prices are now sinking as that deal is looking like it isn't going ahead quite as planned. That's good news for you, the consumer as heating oil prices are following suit and reducing to a price that mirrored September's levels. Click here to read an article on the current market status.
We would like to wish all of our hard-working heating oil suppliers and loyal customers a very Happy Halloween 2016, from the Fuel Tool customer support team. We are very proud to have been serving Great Britain for over five years now and hope this autumn season brings you good health and happiness.
Opec Announcement Makes Heating Oil Prices Rise
Reading the latest article from The Guardian, crude oil and heating oil prices have risen dramatically over the past week, we're sad to say, and the trend going into the winter may continue on its path this way upwards. This is due to an announcement that crude oil output is going to have a cap on its production caused by a previous overproduction problem. Saying all of this you can see how crucial it is to make sure you follow the prices and buy when they are lowest. Use Fuel Tool's daily price updates and be in the know every day.
New Suppliers on Fuel Tool
Yorkshire, West Midlands and Central England now have new suppliers which we'd like to offer a warm welcome this past week, who'll surely help Fuel Tool keep prices at their lowest.
Crudely Put, Oil Prices are Low!
Prices have continued to drop in the international crude oil market and we haven't see the price per barrel this low since 2008. Click here to read the latest article from Reuters where they discuss why oil prices are so low right now. Heating oil prices follow a similar general price path, so that's great news to us all. Order now while prices are at rock bottom and ensure your winter will be one filled with warmth, and spend the money you've saved on something nice for Christmas instead!

El Nino Promises Cold Winter
The weather buzz is always important at Fuel Tool and this time it's El Nino that is making headlines.

Additionally, here is an interesting BBC Video talking about the same issue.

Weather or Not...
Whether December brings cold and freezing weather or not, it would be wise to order your oil at the soonest possible time.

Jack Frost is Here - Save by Ordering Early
It was -3 degrees here at the Cheshire headquarters of Fuel Tool this morning and our suppliers are still listing prices not too far off our summer rates. Don't forget that as the weather gets colder and heating oil suppliers' businesses pick up, the prices tend to increase. Procrastinate on filling your tank and you might risk having to pay higher prices when Jack Frost really comes to town!
Get What You Pay For!
Read our Latest Tweet article from the BBC website. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) are concerned that oil suppliers may occasionally deliver less oil than people are paying for. Every oil tanker should have an accurate gauge to show you how many litres have been pumped to your tank. Heating oil suppliers should refund you the difference if you don't get what you paid for. It makes sense to check your levels before and after your oil has been delivered just to make sure. We wouldn't want it any other way. Fuel Tool suppliers are dedicated to being accurate and providing an honest service. If a mistake is made, we want to know about it. That's the Fuel Tool commitment to transparency. What you see is ALWAYS what you should get!
Price Trends on Fuel Tool

Don't Procrastinate - Order Now and Save Hundreds of Pounds!
Based on last winter's trend, prices are likely to rise as availability of heating oil decreases throughout the cold winter months. History has shown that ordering in December or January can be much more expensive and cost you hundreds of pounds extra. As fuel demand rises when the frost and snow hit the UK, you can expect a substantial increase in costs, so Order Now while the prices are low and save loads on your heating oil bill this winter.

Fuel Tool - Not a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
Fuel Tool welcomes the recent action of the OFT. However, they must be careful not to tar all online price comparison websites who sell heating oil with the same brush. In the ever changing world of heating oil, transparency is key. Recently, some heating oil price comparison sites have come under close scrutiny and have been exposed for lacking transparency. We are very proud to say that Fuel Tool is not one of those sites. Founded on an ethos of transparency and fairness, we have nothing to hide. Fuel Tool is not owned by an oil supplier or distributor and is proud of our independent status.
Google Street View and Google Maps - Supplier Tools Excel
Our suppliers now have the added benefit of being able to view the satellite imagery of the location where oil is being delivered to. This allows them to properly assess access to the property and prepare for potential obstacles. Also integrated into Fuel Tool is the Google Street view, which allows delivery drivers to see entrances and exits before they arrive. It goes to show that Fuel Tool isn't just for customers looking for the cheapest oil, but it's really a fantastic tool for our dedicated oil suppliers as well.
Fuel Tool Record Week!
Thank you, England, Wales and Scotland for choosing Fuel Tool this past week for your independent price comparison for home heating oil. Our last week of turnover on the website was another record breaker, showing us and Great Britain that what you want is an unbiased, fair and easy to use price comparison / ordering system for your domestic kerosene orders.

Credit Card Processing Fees - Fuel Tool Improves Transparency
Debit Card purchases are and have always been FREE from the Fuel Tool website; however, many Fuel Tool suppliers unfortunately must pass on merchant fees if you choose to pay via a credit card. Previously, customers ordering from Fuel Tool would be notified of potential credit card processing fees at the point of checkout. In response to recent comments made on the Fuel Tool website regarding this, we have decided to implement a new change to our search results page which will now display potential credit card charges that a supplier may pass onto you, before you select your product and proceed to the checkout. This should save shoppers time and give you a greater insight into the real cost of ordering domestic heating oil from Fuel Tool. We feel that this is the fairest way to show you our suppliers' kerosene prices.

Slow Kerosene Trading Week As Economic Fears Unfold About Possible Recession
The Kerosene Domestic Fuel market has seen a dramatic slow down in activity this week due to the fears of a double dip recession coming closer. This week's news from overseas' markets has sparked new concerns and therefore confidence has been knocked, sending home heating oil buyers into a holding pattern as heating oil price trends are being questioned. As interest rates reach new lows, kerosene buyers are dubious about crude oil prices and the knock on effect with heating oil prices so are willing to wait for a short time until prices stabilise. As winter nears, home consumers are hoping cheaper crude prices might play to their advantage as they are waiting for just the right moment to strike and fill up their oil tanks.
Low Price Matrix Launched
Our suppliers now have a low price matrix to check their available regions for other suppliers' prices. This allows them at any time of the day to view live pricing of other suppliers, enabling them to go head to head to achieve the best sitewide pricing for Kerosene and GasOil.
Scotland Suppliers Take Off on Fuel Tool
For a long time now, Scotland home owners have suffered with Domestic Heating Oil prices because of the remoteness of many areas and lack of suppliers who deliver there. We're here to try and change that. We currently have four different suppliers who have agreed to deliver to the Scotland area. With more suppliers, the prices should be brought down. Competition is king and we hope Scotland kerosene customers will feel the benefit.
