    Is heating oil regulated like gasoline in NS? I want to fill my oil tank while prices are so low but I see the price of gas is supposed to go down another ten cents at midnight.. does heating oil drop too?

    what I read earlier they weren't expecting diesel to change with this one, just gas so not sure what or if any change will happen with FO. We called Maritime fuels on Friday and they were about 68.6c/l with two cents of for prepayment bring it down to $0.666 / L. Still haven't been here to deliver it yet, so not sure if that'll change tonight

    I wish you could get a prepaid gas card but instead of it being issued for a dollar amount, it would be for a number of litres. We would go in an purchase 500 litres and load on it.

    Yeah we're gonna feel the crunch of that one. If Alberta wasn't hurting before, this gotta be really killing them. It's one thing to not be able to get your product to market, not having a market at all is a whole different level of bad :/

    When we called the lady said do you want to lock in now (It had just dropped that day) or wait and see what happens. We locked in, she also said if it gets much lower they won't be selling...
