Folks, In 1980 I started an oil company with the help of my loving wife Donna. With $3000.00, I bought a
1964 White oil truck and a load of oil from Quincy Oil Co.
Now after 36 years, I am proud to announce that I have
sold my oil company to my sons Richard and Christopher. I have the deepest confidence in both of them. They have
been involved in the business since they were kids. They did whatever they could to make my work a little easier.
Both know the business from the bottom up. They have done it all.
My wife Donna has
worked right along with me since we started the business. I could not have been so successful without her.
Donna will still be involved in the daily operation of the business. The woman refuses to get old.
hope to help my boys in any way I can but they will be in control of everything.
I would like to
thank everyone that I have had the pleasure to meet in this business. I wish all of you good health, happiness
and success at whatever you do.

Well it's official. Chapter 453 of the acts
of 2008 (an act relative to homeowner heating safety) was signed by the govenor. A full text can be read on the Mass
State website here
. An analysys from the Mass Oil Heat Council can be found here
(halfway down the page). In a nutshell it states in homes where an oil line touches the floor it must be protected.
Homeowners insurance companies will also be affected by this new law.
I talked to an oil industry
representative who was involved in the input of information to the bill. He stated that the State Fire Marshall had
not formulated the process of implamenting this law to the local fire departments but this law is eventually going to be enforced.
Now is a good time to check that oil line and tank. There is a tag on the tank which will tell you how old it is.
If there is no tag it's a good bet that it's old and should be replaced. At the present time if your oil line is
in the ground it should be encased in plastic tubing or have an oil safety valve on the tank. This valve shuts
the supply of oil off if there is a leak in the line. This valve is in addition to the firomatic valve which shuts
the oil supply off if there is a fire.
Replacing the oil tank at the same time that the
oil line is updated should be considered. Consider replacing the tank if the tapping is on the side of the
tank. The new tanks have the oil line tapping on the bottom of the tank. The new tanks are pitched toward the
oil line which allows most of the contaminants (especially water) to collect in the filter instead of staying in the
tank. Most tank failures are caused by a small amount of water creating a hole in the bottom of the tank from corrosion.
Upgrading tanks and oil lines are a real safety issue worth the expense. Call us for more
information and a quote on installation.

According to a Daily Finance article by Vishesh Kumar
2/7/11 Iraq has enormous reserves. Under Sadam Hussein, Iraq had not fully utilized its capacity to produce
crude oil. Iraq has the potential to increase its production of crude oil, presently at 1.5 to 2 million barrels a day
to 10 to 12 million barrels a day. It could propel Iraq to overtake Saudi Arabia as the largest supplier of crude
oil. This is according to the global intelligence firm Stratfor
I think it's an overstatement to say the world is awash in the supply of oil. It's quite
evident that with the underdeveloped reserves of ANWR
in Alaska, the Bakken
reserves in the Dakota area and all the recent discoveries of oil reserves off the coast of the United States we do
not have to be dependant from any one source of oil. If all the sources of energy are developed in an environmentally
careful way we can secure our energy needs for decades. We can do this while we develop alternative energy sources
that are economically feasible without the need for additional taxes on us to supplement their costs.

Well, since January 21 we've been on the backside of winter. Crude oil
inventories fell by 3.9 million barrels last week. Crude inventories are at 326.7 million barrels which is above average
for this time of year. Gasoline inventories increased by 2 million barrels. Our favorite - distillate inventories
rose by .4 million barrels. Both gasoline and distillate (fuel oil) inventories are well above normal levels for this
time of year. Total oil demand is down by 2% from last year. Distillate demand is 3.7 million barrels, down by
8.1% over last year. This is a four week rolling average. I am cautiously optimistic about the price of oil.
Barring something unforeseen, I don't see the price of oil going up. There are signs it could gradually drift lower.
