I purchased my usual 150 gallons of fuel oil for the season yesterday and paid $3.29 a gallon here in upstate, NY. What's the price in your area?

It's 3.21 here but I got 125 gallons in April at 3.07. After this tank I'm done. I'm going with a GE hybrid water heater after I found out my utility company offers a $400 rebate.
 
Almost 1.25/liter after taxes x 4 = $5 per gallon :( Bringing in enough to have 3/4 of a tank next week or so it'll be $400 (320L / 80Gals added to what is left from last year).

Some happy to have 3 cords of dry split wood for this winter.

3.16 actually the company that delivers oil to us called up a couple days ago asking if we needed any. I told him politely that we had a geo system installed and don't have oil tanks/system anymore. Felt good although he's a nice person just trying to make a living glad I wont be writing him a check for oil ever again.

$3.60 here this AM. If US throws a Tomahawk into Syria that will look very good.

10 years ago it would be even more of an issue... with current oil production up in the US and considering most if not all of our home heating oil comes from Canada no one is calling for 8 dollar a gallon anymore. Could reach 4.50 if things go hostile in the gulf. When it does hello electric hot water heater. Just realized I am burning 30 gallons a month for hot water with a direct fired coil. So ready to send that thing out to pasture.

Just bought another 1000 gallons at $3.29/gal. Used exactly 1000 gallons last year, 1400 gallons the year before, and 1900 gallons the year before that.

I installed an electric HW heater in February to fully cut the oil. I was using about 25 gallons a month. With the electric heater, my electric bill went up about $40 a month. About a $50 a month savings in my area.
