Market commentary

The summer of 2021 has seen oil prices yo-yo around and ultimately continue a slow rise from the depths of induced by Covid. OPEC+ has begun to increase production as crude is trading around the $70 per barrel level that is highly profitable for oil-producing nations that have low extraction costs.

The $70 price level should also stimulate more domestic production, but that has yet to materialize. The effects of last year’s plummet have no doubt slowed many companies down in their efforts to resume production. It’s also made them a little warier. Add to that an administration in Washington that may not be as friendly to the extraction industry and it will take even higher prices to stimulate much increase in U.S. production.

We don’t like to speculate on the markets, but with markets yo-yoing like they have in the late summer, our hope is building that we may have a great winter of savings for our members.

The Green Energy Consumers Alliance formula for member savings is based on a dollar cost averaging approach. This means that regardless of the ups and downs of the oil market, our participating dealers have agreed to keep their delivery mark-up fixed all year long. Our prices change every day because that fixed delivery mark-up is added to the wholesale prices our dealers pay, which change daily.

We strive to deliver 15-30 cents a gallon savings compared to what dealers are charging to people who are not members Green Energy Consumers. Member savings can grow even greater than that when prices peak and then fall significantly. These are the weeks when our members save the most! So, with volatile market signals and an unsure economic pathway due to the continued pandemic, we’ll see how markets react as the weather cools and we turn on our heaters.

On our first delivery, we recouped our membership fee vs. paying the cost quoted by the local dealer. We love that we have a local dealer for oil and service, but also that we can save money and… Read more
