I have a fuel Oil back up furnace.I called the fuel company for a delivery.They said the price was $3.89 /gallon.The diesel fuel at the pumps is $3.50 / gallon.After I saw that, I canceled the delivery. What the heck is going on with these guys.Their price has not gone down at all.With most of North East heating with fuel oil, how can they tax that higher than Diesel?? People are dumping the oil burners switching to LP. I don't think thats going to save much.You can get Off road diesel at 2/3 price.But only farmers and construction companies can get that.Not the working class or fixed income to heat their homes. Its $1000 dollars for one furnace tankfull. It has gotten way out of control now.I can see taxing gas or truck fuel.But heating oil? Nobody does anything,they say oh its George Bush's fault. But our local congress and senate, Dem or Rep just don't do anything! They can figure out how much it cost to make fuel oil and put controls on price ,but they won't. It does not matter who's in white house, its who's in the Legislative branch. Price is not going to go down if Obama wins.Nor probley if MCcain. Every one can't burn coal or wood.The electric companies in North East use fuel oil to generate power.The new nucular plants was killed 30 years ago.Now we are stuck with coal and oil fired plants.
