Weekly Fuel Update
1st December 2021

Prices reduce slightly and Lead Times extend, as predicted

Prices have stabilised and are starting to reduce slightly, although not to the extent of the decline in crude futures. As expected, a number of suppliers are starting to increase lead times, so the guidance below to order by 10th December to be sure of Xmas delivery, holds true.

Plan for Xmas - order by 10th December to guarantee pre-Xmas delivery

Fuel lead times are now down to 5-7 working days, and suppliers are expecting this to increase over the next few weeks. There is variability in lead time by supplier, but to be sure of delivery before Xmas, Orion recommend you place your order by end of 10th December.


Christmas hours for Orion and key fuel suppliers (including contact names and numbers) are set out below. In the week between Christmas and New Year please call suppliers direct if you are chasing an order or placing an order.
