Hello All, In the past we usually "pre-buy" our heating oil to lock in low summer prices for use in the winter. I don't know what to do this year as it seems that oil prices may be higher this summer than they might be this winter. The pre-buy is usually late summer/early fall. We could fill up now and take our chances. If we pre-buy and the price drops then we've bought more expensive oil. I do know that I've cut and stacked extra firewood this past winter just in case. For those who live in the north land and prebuy, what are you planning on doing? Arggh, looks like a potential budget buster.
