    Scoots seemed pretty normal 3 years ago when he started the crypto thread.

    Lidl must be the exception then, because most shops have been cleared out.

    Tax on heating oil is only 5%. On petrol and diesel the duty is about 60p a litre, so that's the absolute lowest it can go even if the price of oil goes to zero.
