Had a shock this morning when in Bricomart in Malaga. Pellets for the stove that were 3.85e a 15kg bag last winter are this year 7.49e. There will be, I hope, a reduction in price from October 1st as the Spanish Gov. has announced VAT on bottled gas and pellets will be reduced from 21% to 5%. Think we will be upstairs most of the cold weather using the log burner (yes it does get cold here, particularly with the style of house construction in Spain), and we receive no heating allowances - IDS saw to that some years back!
