Re: Buying Heating Oil in Bulk?
What you can do is "lock in" a price from your supplier at the beginning of the season to buy all your oil at a fixed price, so you are immunized from any increase during the contract period. Of course, should the price go down, you don't get the savings, they do; but if the price were to increase significantly, you are protected. The contracts do usually contain outs for the supplier owing to increases on account of forces majeure, (like war or acts of god) so that all has to be considered in your decision.
Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set.
