Heating Oil Price Map

In 2017 we created the 24 month heating oil price graph, which proved very popular with those of you that are interested in how the market and price of heating oil changes throughout the year.

In 2018 we were proud to launch our Heating Oil Price Map within the Heating Oil Price page. You can use the map to get an instant impression of what the price is in your area.



A Message From Chris Bicknell, Managing Director

Hello again and thanks for reading our heating oil price review, with 2018 well behind us it’s good to look back at how the market reacted in 2018 (and what a year it was!) and to look forward to 2019.

This is the perfect opportunity to thank everyone that has helped HomeFuels Direct continue to grow at a fantastic pace and make us the UK’s favourite online supplier of heating oil.

Since the last review the UK experienced one of the coldest winters since records began and it even got its own name ‘The Beast from the East’. This would inevitably bring logistical challenges and issues due to the extreme nature of the weather and did cause extended delivery windows and delivery schedules being cut or postponed due to the extreme nature of the weather. The intensity of the weather meant that any company involved in the supply or distribution of heating oil did find this period very challenging. We would like to thank our customers for your patience throughout the prolonged cold period.

It’s 2019 which means we are now into our 11th year in business and we continually look at ways to innovate the online sector to make the experience of buying your heating oil online quicker, more seamless and ultimately a pleasant experience. This is why we continue to work hard to research, develop and bring the best innovation to you so that we can make sure we offer some of the cheapest heating oil prices on the market.

The Beast From The East
