Seems like a sound strategy. I just hate commitment.

I believe I can claim the title of the biggest sucker ... $4.26 with Petro - existing contract (filled at the beginning of November) - this is with tax but still... - a ripoff.

I know I saw a post before but how much is the average cost of going from oil to gas?

well I paid $3,300 to do my conversion. I already had gas coming in though. I did get an estimate from a Lipa Contractor first and they wanted $8,000. I got the guy who used to service my oil burner to do it.

Mine cost $7,000 (new burner and water heater). Not sure what he paid $3,300 for but if there is a gas line within 100 feet they will run it to your house for free. Anything over 100 ft can get very expensive unless you get 8 people to sign up. Obv from this post oil is rising and gas is dropping and since we produce the gas in the US and have such a huge surplus, it was a no brainer.

I have gas heat in my garage and oil heat in my house. I haven't noticed my gas bill decrease.

Oil is currently down about $20/barrel from 2 months ago.

I have been watching the price of home heating oil dropping with the season. February I paid $3.669/gal for 200 delivered; today is is $2.999/gal for 200 gal delivered. Friday, June 4th the same company was charging $3.069/gal for 200 delivered.

I always try and time my big fill over the summer when prices are lowest.
