Our tank is too small to mess around too much and so I gave in this morning and bought 500 litres of oil for just under 450. At this time of year that's 6-8 weeks worth.

I'm confident that the price will now drop like a stone.

A BBC article in which a Norwegian energy company boss says that energy prices are likely to remain at the current high levels for the foreseeable future.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-64270157

This is despite a fall in the wholesale price of natural gas to below pre-war levels which in turn IMO indicates that some companies stand to make super-profits for a long time to come.
