Group purchasing also works for domestic fuel oil, whose prices have doubled in one year. Thursday, September 15, the government announced that there would be specific aid for low-income families, with up to 200 euros more. In Moselle, residents have joined forces to lower their bills.
The larger the delivery of fuel oil, the more attractive the discount. This is the principle of the grouped order set up in three communes of Moselle. A resident of Macheren (Moselle) thus saved 160 euros for 800 liters intended for his mother. “She probably should have saved on something else, that’s for sure. As she is of a certain age, she is 87, sRetirement is not huge so any savings these days is welcome”explains Martin bigelbeneficiary of the grouped order.
On that day, fuel deliveries follow one another. More than 100 people joined the initiative, enough to benefit from a saving of 0.19 cents per liter of fuel oil. For its part, the government announced, Thursday, September 15, aid of up to 200 euros. But this is not enough according to Philippe Dehlingermunicipal councilor at the initiative of the project: “Once again, this is not enough and we should get used locally to pooling, associating and federating to benefit from other prizes.” Before the success of the grouped order, it could be renewed in January or even extent to other municipalities.
