Home fuel costs
Posted by Mac Cummings on January 10, 2022, 10:53:30
I was reminded by the "Utilities" thread of how the millions on rural dwellers without a gas supply are at the mercy of market prices but never receive the attention of the mainstream media despite it being known that fuel poverty exists in great numbers in rural areas where wages are typically lower.
Turn to gas and electricity prices rising and the hounds are immediately out and running.....!
Those of you on the board who use oil will know how painful some of the oil prices over the last 20 years have been.
Although I alway knew how much my fuel (oil + Elec) was costing me, and I could afford it, it wasnt until I downsized to an area with gas that I saw the extent of the saving I am now making.
