in saying all that it depends where you're based and maybe the lorry is making a delivery near your place in the next 24 hours.
That doesn't matter, you get the price on the day you order so you still have until tomorrow.

Discount looks about 20% at best rates on cheapest oil.

That must be at least the margin that the distributors are working off so which sounds about right.

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.

In fuel they work off cent per litre as their costs don't change with fuel prices.
7-8 c would be normal, so whilst it's about 25% now and sounds great, it's 10% when the price is €750/1000L

And that covers drivers, delivery cost and office staff along with rent, rates etc etc


Refineries are cutting their margins and that's making prices even lower. No sign of any increase coming, so I wouldn't be rushing. The carbon tax will add less than €20 to a full tank

This makes no sense when talking about a business that's primary cost is in transporting many thousands of tons of product by road on a daily basis.

800 Ls for 290 quid and my tank is filled. Job done today. If the 800 Ls doesn't fit, the oil company have agreed to fill the drums I have with the balance. Happy now that the next winter fuel need is done. One less worry.

Laois.

I built my house in 2016/2017 and I was as smug as anything putting in an Air to Water heat pump pitying the suckers who were going to get fleeced for oil in years to come.

Joke's on me!!!!! (for the time being)

So are you saying that it costs more to deliver oil at 80c per litre than oil at 35c per litre.???

And that other costs including office and administrative and other fixed costs are different depending on the oil prices?

Seriously?
