BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Each fall, New Englanders brace themselves for a winter season of soaring heating oil costs. Couple that with today's economic climate and budgeting for this season's heating oil seems even more daunting. But Clickfil, a new online heating oil delivery company, is helping homeowners and small businesses in Arlington, Lexington, Medford, Winchester and Woburn warm up to the idea of saving a lot of money. Clickfil is a revolutionary web-based oil heat provider that makes buying heating oil simpler and more affordable by offering heating oil at the click of a mouse and up to 30 cents less per gallon than other providers.

Within the five towns serviced, the average percentage of homes currently using heating oil is 49.8%, or almost half of all homes. Adding to this number, statistics show that more than 63 million residents in the United States pay their bills online, and in Massachusetts approximately 73% of all households use the Internet.
