If anyone out there using heating oil top off your tanks now. 2.49 a gallon here in the ohio valley!

Filling up my extra 275 before prices shoot up. Cost me 1100 last year to fill up this year just over 600.

I have about 250 + gallons I am about to sell.   Did away with my oil burner and have a tank about full.  I'm just waiting till the price goes back up.

I need to clean the area around the fuel oil tank for my garage so I can get a delivery before the prices go up. I don't work out there too much in winter but its nice to know I can flip a switch and get it warm fairly quickly . I think its about 1/3 full so nows the time

It sucks because we filled our 275 gallon tank before winter hit thinking it wasn't going to get any better and I think at that time it was $3.29. I think we are going to top it off here soon though even though it wouldn't be that much. I don't recall if the oil company has a minimum gallon limit.

we don't burn the oil, or even very much LP any more, but I don't see the prices taking a big jump unless something dirty comes along , like a false man made shortage. Our gas in only $1.94 and has been for a couple of weeks.

I'll come get it Jack, maybe 5 gals at a time though haha
 
My mom has hers filled up back in Nov, hse is on a shared heating plan for fixed income seniors. I saw the bill...3.49 a gallon. 

Since we just moved in, i been burning  the furnace add on to keep from using oil. I don't want to have to fill any time soon.

Marty,
Mine is in two 275 gal tanks that are T'ed together in my basement. Only way I am going to screw with it is if someone can drop a hose in the window and draw it out. I hate the smell of that stuff in the house. No way I am going to try to carry it out 5 gal at a time. I will just leave it where it is if it comes to that. I went to electric.

The place that my friend works for dumped 250 gallons in a tank in a basement like they did every year but the problem was that they switched over to another source of heat and removed the tank but not the fill tube.They ended up buying the place.

Wow! Why did they even deliver if the home owner never called to get filled? Must've been automatic fill up!

My grandmother always had her fuel oil tanks on an automated thing.

In ohio we only pay sales tax on heating oil, and that was like 14 dollars on my last fill up.

My brother in law just got oil, it was still 2.99 per gallon. My mom got it in Nov before the crude oil drop and it was 3.49 so not much of a drop....just like deisel.
