Fuel poverty in Northern Ireland has been at its highest level for quite some time, but with heating oil prices in Northern Ireland at a 16 month low many households are taking advantage of the global decline of oil prices.
The average heating oil price for 900 litres in Northern Ireland is around £480.00, this represents a saving of almost £75.00 compared to the price for the same 900 litres in December 2011, which would have cost domestic heating oil users around £555.00.
Oil consumers that fill their tanks in winter should re-think how and when they purchase their home heating oil. The demand for heating oil usually peaks in winter and prices are usually at their highest, so home owners should instead plan to buy their oil during the summer months when the prices are traditionally much lower.
