up here in Derbyshire there's alot of that activity going on as well.....
I use Oil for heating and there is currently a massive wave of heating oil theft going in around the UK...... Crooks follow the delivery tankers and siphone off the oil just after delivery......... my tank is in a locked out building but you never know.......
Just for the record - Heating Oil
Purchased in 2009 950 litres and invoiced at £435
Purchased 1 week ago 909 litres and Invoiced at £647
That's a 55% INCRREASE if you do the maths in the space of 2 years - thats the real inflation figure going on....!
Be Thankful if your a Gas (natural gas) user .......
Also......... This is Not a Politcal issue as the previous Government 'COULD HAVE' reduced the petrol duty if it has wished. BUT IT DIDN'T because easy money in the coffers.......... Now with our overspend and debt burden I feel SORRY for George Osbourne because what can he do ? What would you do ?
We will all have to get used to HAVING A BIT LESS i'm afraid............ we've had the good times and they were MIs Managed now we've got the bad times coming.........
