Families Need to Prepare for Winter Heating BillsSubscribe to our RSS news feed

A recent article in the Mirror warned families who use heating oil to stock up on fuel now, before high price increases during the winter. 

Last year increases in the cost of crude oil combined with transportation problems caused by impassable roads due to ice and snow, led to a price spike that left many homeowners feeling the cold.  Forecasters are already calling for a cold winter as bad as, or potentially worse, than last year.

But with the price of crude oil already creeping up, campaigners said households face a repeat of last winter when bills took a 70 per cent hike.

Mark Todd of Energyhelpline.com said: “Families face horrendous bills and many of them will end up in debt or in the cold.”
