§ Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is the present average price per gallon of oil used in district heating systems.
§ Mr. Gray
Prices of petroleum products do not vary according to the circumstances of their end use; no specific price data are therefore available for heating oils delivered for use in district heating systems.
Typical consumer prices, inclusive of duty, in mid-October 1982 for heating oils likely to be used in such systems are as follows:
Pence per gallon Burning oil (standard grade) 99.1 Gas oil (35 secs) 99.4
Note: In some cases actual prices paid may be cheaper by virtue of rebates granted to customers.
