Kerosene prices : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

Can anyone give me an idea of what bulk Kerosene prices are in their area?

Stores are selling gallons for $3, 2.5 gal containers for $7.99

A local gas station has a pump that has it for $1.69 per gallon.

I called one bulk heating oil dealer yesterday and they told me it was $1.70 per gal and I had to bring a drum there and fill it.

How does this compare to other parts of the US

(I'm in the Chicago area)

shop around- prices vary ALOT. I just filled up two 5 gallon cans for my greenhouse heaters- one was $1.77/gallon!! the other I got for $1.06/gallon- needless to say- I'll get it there in the future...

In my town of Swissvale which is in Pittsburgh, PA, I am paying $1.30/gal. However, people I know outside of Allegheny County are paying $.99/gal. Get it now.

I'm in So Cal, and the best price I could find was $2.70 a gallon up to $4.30. Yikes. Anyone know where in Orange County to buy it closer to that .99 cents a gallon price?

Get a pickup and a couple of oil drums and head over into Indiana to some Amish communities and check around. You will find it priced much more reasonably over there, I think. Sorry I can't give more specific directions. My neighbors picked up K-1 in central IN for about $60 for a barrel.
