    I'm lucky, I can hear even without oil.:)

    Although I still can't hear some things my dog can.

    Yes, but heating oil companies also offer a "cap price" contract, in which the consumer is charged no higher than that "cap" (big win for customer if oil prices skyrocket), but is charged any price available on a delivery date that's below the cap.

    In either case, both the company and the consumer are speculating as to where prices will go in the course of the year.

    And there also are companies that do "spot delivery" -- with no contract specifying the price at the time of delivery.
    But also no assurance of availability when fuel is needed.
    ;)

    I just looked through the classified ads in QST and HRO catalogues for the last four years, some rigs got cheaper and have stayed that way. The Icom 7300 was down to just under 900 dollars for a short time, then went up again. The Ic-7610 price dropped by about 500 dollars, and so did the TS-890S. Just recently, the Yaesu FTdx-101D and 101-MP also came down in price and they have not changed.
