Understanding Heating Oil Prices

Rural homeowners who rely on heating oil will know that prices fluctuate throughout the year. It's important to understand why these fluctuations occur in order to get the best price.

It's all about supply and demand! During colder months, people tend to have their home heating switched on (and turned up) for a lot of the time, which inevitably means more people will be buying heating oil to keep those thirsty boilers running. When consumer demand for something increases, generally its value goes up. It's basic economics. The same is true for the heating oil industry. During Autumn and Winter, temperatures are cooler, therefore demand for heating goes up which makes heating oil more valuable during this period. In the summer months, temperatures are much warmer, thus fewer people are buying heating oil so prices drop as the demand falls.

As a reputable heating oil supplier, we always recommend that our customers stock up in the summer months while the prices are lower. Buying extra whilst its warmer is a good way to keep heating costs down over the course of the year.

It's not all about the weather!

The cost of crude oil is also a main contributor to the price of home heating oil. Last year, the average price of crude oil finished at $66.87 per barrel but prices are known to fluctuate anywhere from $30 to $100. The price of crude is what is known as "volatile". Anything from local competition, conflict in oil-producing countries, political issues, refining costs and the OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) can cause prices to move. When the price of crude oil moves, so does heating oil.
