Market commentary

Super cold weather nation-wide tested gas-fired power plants capacity in February, and increased pressure on heating oil prices. Typically if the spot price of natural gas exceeds the price of heating oil, some power plants will switch fuels thus spurring more demand in commodity futures markets, increasing the wholesale prices that our dealers have to pay.

What will happen to prices the rest of this heating season? That's a question we're loath to guess at beyond suggesting that our heating oil program savings will continue. What we've seen over the past years is that our savings are squeezed when markets are rising, and they grow to huge levels when markets fall. Last year was a great example of that: our price difference New Year's 2020 was about 25-35 cents, only to grow as much as 60-70 cents for a few days in March and early April. We're not expecting quite the sell off this spring as last year, but we also don't see prices rising to the $3.00 per gallon level for our members any time soon.

    When we first purchased a house with oil heat, we did deep research and found Green Energy Consumers. 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
