My partial fill last Sunday cost 2.14/l. Was a bit of a bummer, as I could have had it for 2.07 on the Friday, but I was buying half for the camper, half for the digger and was wary of keeping a 20l jerry-can of the juice simmering in my living/sleeping space all weekend in 40°C heat. :(

I'm giving serious thought to getting a fill of home heating oil now. I normally get a full in Sept/Oct but I'm afraid of shortages later

Just filled up my heating oil tank (from half to full) today with my usual supplier. Got it at 129 per litre - and happy enough. Delivery man advised the price has been variable and chaotic this past while (up 3c one day, down 3c the next type of thing), but the autumn/winter is very very uncertain. Fuel shortages, ESB outages etc etc. All conjecture of course, but in his 20+ years of oil delivery he's never seen it so volatile!

The more I think about it, the more I'm tempted not to wait until September

Saw the first sub €2 a litre diesel price in mid-Louth today. Wasn't expecting that, but apparently some forecourts are dropping their prices as there is reduced footfall in the attached shops.

Oh now it dawns on the shops that making things expensive deters customers and they loose sales!

I can see that happening with hotels here next year. I've seen it with hire cars already.

Was checking the price of Kero with my local supplier this morning, was 760 euro for 500 litres two week ago, 730 last week and now 689 this morning. Wonder will it keep dropping 😀

Yesterday morning, my local Applegreen dropped their prices through the floor (relatively speaking) - €2.05 to €1.79. I received word on the vine, a "blink and you'll miss it" event. By the time I landed, there was a queue twenty strong backed up on both sides of the road. Everyone was good tempered, plenty to go around. After fifteen minutes it was my turn and filled her to the brim. Only on leaving the forecourt that the panic wagons showed, turning for home I encountered a tail nearly a kilometre long. Thank f*ck for opportune timing, a half hour later Applegreen reset the scales and many a disappointed motorist cursed their luck.

Should never be allowed happen without proper traffic management. I tried to get through Tullow that morning and the whole town was taken up with the queue for the Applegreen. In the latter stages when you did get a chance to go out past them, some of of the rotten tramps would pull out of the queue to stop you out of fear I was as big an idiot as they were when all I wanted to do was get past.

Diesel at 1.78/l in the local supermarket today, and for the last few days, but only one chain. Other fuels also at exceptionally low prices ... if there's any left. I suspect it's a deliberate ploy to get the holiday public to do their Big Shop for the week in the hypermarket next door.

I only went to get 20l for the digger, but took another 20l for the camper in case I get it into my head to go on a trip somewhere instead of getting back to working in the garden.
