Home heating oil prices are so high this winter. I couldn't imagine how much more I would have had to pay if we actually had a typical New England Winter. At least I was able to save a good amount of money by switching my dealer to smart click energy. Check them out www.smartclickenergy.com and they might be able to save you some money.
