HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c241W
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.
