The cost of home heating oil has soared to over £1,000 for 900 litres, making it difficult for many couples and families to stay warm.
The most affordable option is roughly £965, although some companies charge as much as £1,074.
Petrol prices have also risen to new highs as the cost of oil and gas rises as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
At one time, oil reached $139 per barrel, the highest level in nearly 14 years.
The most recent increase in UK gasoline prices has pushed the price to almost £7 per gallon.
