Many people will now be thinking about ordering oil for the winter. Oil prices are probably only going to get higher with increased demand as the weather gets colder, but a lot of us don’t have much choice and have to pay up because we have to use it anyway. If you know that neighbours also might need oil, it may be worth getting together to organise shared oil deliveries to try and keep the costs down.
However, there is also a scheme run by the Community Council for Devon, which may help to reduce the price. The Devon Oil Collective is a county-wide syndicate and, by bringing communities together throughout Devon, they are able to achieve much greater purchasing power.
