Ofgem does not regulate the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) sector and we therefore have no influence in this area.
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) have taken action to prevent consumers being misled when searching online for heating oil supplies.
The OFT found that some websites offering to find consumers the best price for heating oil were not clear about whether they were price comparison sites or sites for ordering heating oil directly from a single supplier. Further information is available in the OFT's press release - link opens in a new browser window.
