NEWS RELEASE - Winter rush for heating oil
Industry Trade Body, the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS), which represents the majority of oil distribution companies in Great Britain, have received a number of calls from the general public about getting heating oil delivered urgently and so is issuing some advice.
Adverse weather conditions have made fuel deliveries difficult and the low temperatures have pushed orders for heating oil to at least twice the seasonal norm. Many customers have let the levels in their heating oil tanks run down to a critical level over the summer and so are now desperate for oil.
