Best price I've been quoted is €390.
It's a tough call, I've ordered 2,000 litres for tomorrow at 37 cent a litre.
Other counties are a lot cheaper but there is a bit of a cartel operating in Kerry from what I can gather. Having said that it would have been 140 euro dearer 5 days ago and I paid 400 euro for 700 litres about 6 weeks ago.
The carbon tax on Friday will add 16 euro per 1,000 litres and there's not a whole lot more room for prices to drop from where we are.
I personally think waiting for a few weeks for another drop that will negate the carbon tax is a gamble and I'm happy enough to get oil at about half price compared to what I paid last year.
