Having lived in New England all of my life, I still am very surprised by the huge swings in temperatures. This winter is no exception. After going through extreme below zero record temps, today it is 60 degrees warmer than yesterday. It is easy to be fooled in to thinking that the winter is over. Beware! This kind of swing in temperatures also has an incredible effect on your local fuel oil dealers.
It is impossible for your local dealer to be at every customers house at the same time. Remember when your tank is reading 1/4 that is the time to order your heating oil. In extreme conditions this fuel will be used very quickly. So, as experienced New Englanders we must plan for the worst conditions. Lets all work together to keep warm!!
