Petrol has gone up another 7p per litre since last week. A different kind of increase is logs for our wood burner.
The guy we normally buy ours from has ceased trading so we have had to find another place.
Last time we ordered, two years ago, one cubic metre was £78. This time, from the new place, it will be £120, hopefully, we fall into the free delivery area!
The next nearest one is selling theirs for £155 plus delivery - blimey.
We could also squeeze another 500 litres of oil into our tank. Last time we ordered, in February, it was 69p per litre or thereabouts. Our neighbour bought hers 3 weeks later for 90p. It currently stands anywhere between 99p and £1.05p per litre. That is the same as the price hike in March.
I am sure it will get worse but do you go for it now, in case the price jumps? Who knows what is best.
That means, any help we get from the government will just about wipe that delivery out and that is ony for 1/2 a tank:(
