Stock up on heating fuels ahead of carbon tax rise, Saturday May 1st
The cost of gas, home-heating oil, coal and briquettes will rise on May 1 due to a rise in the tax.
• A home-heating oil fill will be €19 dearer as a result of the carbon tax rise in May. Carbon tax then will account for €84 of the cost of filling a 900-litre tank.
• Another 17c will be added to the cost of a bale of peat briquettes, and a 40kg bag of coal will be 79c dearer
