    Oil should be, at the CT pumps (High, but not the highest) at $2.35 for low, and 10 cents rising. $2.60 is still too high.

    But, according to Shepard Smith's show on Fox, the past 3 weeks have seen a substantial DROP in US consumption. If we keep this up, and build up reserves, we may be in the clear for the next year. Home Heating is still on the up though - With the major companies filling their tanks this summer. You will still see $300+ monthly oil bills.

    All I can still say is, there has to be a better way.

    300 a MONTH for oil?

    thats just fukcing absurd.

    last year, when home heating oil was about 2.50 ish, my family and i went through 1 full tank (150 gal) and about 1/4 of the refill, so about 200 gallons, for a total of 400 bucks for october through april.

    granted, i keep my house around 60-62 most the time, but there is no need to spend 300 bucks a month unless your an old fuck with arthritis. no need to be 75 degrees in the house.

    2.97-2.99 for premium here.

    Of course I haven't filled up since the 5th, and I'm still at a half tank... so it's not really that expensive.

    Thank God East of Chicago closed so I'm not filling up twice a week anymore.

    150 is a TINY tank... You sure its not a 250?

    And we moved into our house in feb. Filled the 250 tank.. Kept it around 68 degrees, and it also does our hot water. I just had to put oil in 2 weeks ago... At $2.50 / gallon... :(

    EDIT: And I paid $1.69 in Feb. <_<

    I FREAKED when I paid $1.80.

    I have a 250 gallon, and it took me one and a half tanks last year. My neighbor upstairs thinks it's a hoot that I heat his house.

    Asshole.

    positive... it is small.
    not sure what my hot water heater is... i think its electric.

    68 is a little warm IMO.

    65 is plenty in the day. 60 at night while you sleep. thats what blankets are for, and sex :)

    This year I have plans to bring the Propane heater into the basement, and work on a few engines at the workbench. That should radiate the house a little.

    But Mr Heater takes about $20 a week to operate.

    This is great, at this point any drop in gasoline prices will get people on a spending craze with gas again. invest now that it is getting "lower" because it's value will indoubtedly rise again as the suv drivers go crazy after saving a whole $10.00. w00t!!! Just like newspaper coupons ;)
