Not yet Dick. It's been almost 8 months. When I ordered, Keystoker told me 12 weeks. At this rate it looks like I'll be burning oil the rest of the winter. :bang:

Look at it this way, oil is 50 cents a gallon cheaper right now then it was last year at this time. Thats in the Lehigh Valley area. :gee:

Around Gettysburg, oil is less than half what it was a year ago. Last winter oil topped out at almost $6/gal. I just topped off the tank a couple weeks ago at $1.59/gal.

But...but... right now is the price is more than I prepaid last year. The reason I turned to coal was that the price I paid last year was way too much!

I do feel for you all. 26 feels like a heat wave.

My logic for the coal was based on last year's prices and what I was being told about the pre-buy programs in this area for winter 08-09. Our normal supplier was selling pre-buy at $5/gal even for this winter. The fee was somewhere around $185. I opted out because I was in the process of ordering coal. It's funny though... I never thought we'd see oil and gasoline this low again.
