Oil vs. Wood

The price oil is up what to do?

My neighbor has about six cords of wood chopped and ready to go into his wood-burning stove. He tells me he spends just $200 on oil a year. Mostly, he heats his house with wood. It's labor intensive but good for the heart, he says. Though hardly carbon neutral.

In the meantime, we buy our heating oil from Boyle. My wife was smart enough to get us locked in before the price spiked. (Nice job, honey!)

Boyle's a good company. When we had a problem with our heater just yesterday, they were right out here to fix it within the hour. Now we're toasty and burning through fuel (and dollars) like nobody's business.
