Statewide Heating Oil Prices Unchanged for Two Weeks

Updated 1 year ago

Maine energy officials say the average statewide price of home heating oil remains unchanged for the second consecutive week. The Governor’s Energy Office says heating oil prices were averaging $3.64 a gallon Wednesday in its weekly price survey. Rates ranged from a high of $3.88 in eastern Maine to $3.38 in southern and western Maine. The average price for propane dropped 2 cents from last week, remaining lower than this time a year ago. Overall, crude oil prices have been trending upward, likely because of factors including U.S. budget negotiations, a weaker dollar and terrorism worries.
