ADDISON COUNTY — Oil prices are subject to change. If anyone knows this, it’s Tom Jackman, owner of Jackman Fuels Inc. in Vergennes. His grandfather started the company in Bristol in the 1930s and he still has receipts from years ago when the price of oil was 13 cents per gallon.
“Then, it was a big deal if it went up to 14 cents in a year,” he said. “In 2008, we were seeing increases of 40 cents overnight.”
