Price of home heating oil on the increase in Cavan and Monaghan

People in Cavan and Monaghan are facing an increase in their bills after figures show home heating oil has shot up by almost a third.

That’s according to a study in today’s Irish Daily Mail, which states people in the local region are paying an average of €735 for around three to five months’ supply. The figures show that if you’re to fill your tank with 1,000 litres of home heating oil, it will cost an extra €175 on top of last year’s cost of €560.

The CSO figures show home heating oil has jumped in price by 29% in the past 12 months.
