Buy your oil before winter, new campaign warns
6:00pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
OLDER residents who use heating oil to warm their homes are being encouraged to stock up before winter.
The ‘Buy Oil Early’ campaign has been launched by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE), Citizens Advice and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers.
The last few severe winters mean that many of the oil distribution companies had an increase in orders and backlogs in delivering oil particularly in remote and rural households.
Lakes MP Tim Farron commented: “Many people in rural areas like ours stock up on heating oil before the winter already. Previous severe winters show it’s better to order early when suppliers have spare delivery capacity.”
