Winter is still officially a couple of months away, but temperatures in northern Vermont will start to drop below freezing before too long. Meanwhile, everyone is feeling the pressure of higher prices for everything from a gallon of milk to a gallon of gas. We know that’s hard on everyone. And we know how important it is for you to have a dependable source of heating oil that won’t break the bank. Especially as winter approaches and you are thinking about what your heating costs might be.
The price of crude oil accounts for most of the cost of heating oil, which has the largest impact on the price. Because crude oil is a commodity—a raw material that can be bought or sold—its own price is driven by the laws of supply and demand. That means the global economy and any issues that affect the supply of crude oil will affect how much you pay to heat your home.
Other factors that contribute to the overall price consider things like labor costs, transportation, and storage costs, as well as the weather.
On a local level, seasonal demand always plays a big role. When temperatures are colder than normal, people use more heating fuels, driving prices up. That’s why we secure large amounts of heating oil year-round, especially during summer, when the costs tend to be lower, so we can pass on savings to you in the winter when you need them most.
