Communities will sometimes band together to make group purchases of heating oil. By doing this these communites can reduce the tanker traffic into their area and also make savings on the price they pay for their oil. This is good news.
However a customer should consider carefully the pro's and cons of buying through buying groups. To assist in this the FPS has produced a guide for buying groups (you can access it from the links on the right hand side of the page).
We would recommend that people considering joining or starting a buying group read the document to help them decide on whether buying through a group would suit them.
