Market commentary

High and erratic prices are expected this winter. Supply issues initiated by the war in Ukraine have tightened up inventories here in the United States. Oil companies are exporting more oil than ever before over the recent months and that is expected to continue. Some media reports have expressed concern of supply issues here in heating oil dependent New England. We’ve seen various wholesale prices vary 30-50 cents a gallon without any significant market swing to help it. Generally higher priced wholesale means a limited spot supply.

Today the Green Energy Consumer Alliance price has generally eased under $4.50 per gallon after a wild ride from February through June. We’ve seen prices slowly ease off over time, although there appears to be a price range for these markets.

We’d advise everyone to get on a budget plan and start sending money now for the upcoming winter. We’ve never really predicted prices, but it is safe to say we’ll see a wide range of prices as the heating season unfolds. Also don’t be surprised if you call one day for the price only to find out it’s gone up (or down) significantly by the time you received your delivery.

Here’s to hoping for benign weather this heating season.
