Stock Markets and Fuel Prices Plunge

As a result of the corona virus outbreak, Saudi Arabia and other various OPEC countries have responded to the downturn by reducing the price of crude oil. Looking at the trend graph shown on the Fuel Tool home page, you can see the dramatic drop that happened today. This will obviously have a knock on effect with heating oil so that's good news if you're looking to buy oil.

Low Prices Bloom

Along with warmer weather and the appearance of spring flowers, we wish to welcome spring with some very low prices on heating oil. You may have noticed the downward trend recently and it appears to be continuing this way at the moment. In November last year, prices were a full 5p/litre higher on average, so it's a great time to order. Give us a call on 01352 219948 or use the Instant Quote Box (above) and get your fuel today.

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.
