I have oil heat and am setup for automatic delivery.
After Katrina hit there was a rise in oil prices and my oil company sent me a letter saying that those on automatic delivery are capped at $2.29 a gallon and if the price of oil drops then it will be dropped for me, the customer.
I had over half a tank left when the cold weather started so I put a hold on my delivery. No use getting $300-400 dollar bill now when I don't have to.
So now I'm just below a half tank and call them to resume delivery.
They tell me it's still $2.29 a gallon. ($2.41 after tax)
Fucking oil prices in general have dropped drastically since Katrina so WTF!!! (last year's price was $1.67)
I'm calling SMO, Griffith, and whoeverthefuckelse to get a lower price.
Price gouging bastards!!! My fucking bill will probably be $500+!!
