Regular Pricing Information
Home heating oil and gas prices sometimes can change dramatically in a short period of time. why does this happen? If refiners, wholesalers, dealers and consumers have enough heating fuel supplies in storage and temperatures do not drop rapidly, prices hold fairly steady (assuming crude oil and gas prices are also not changing much). However, a rapid change to colder weather can impact both supply and demand; people want more fuel at the same time that harbors and rivers are frozen or delivery systems are interrupted.
Why do the prices fluctuate?
When crude oil prices are stable, home heating oil prices tend to gradually rise in the winter months when demand is highest.
