Personally - I don't get it Spanky25 - gas is at near $4 a gal, home heating oil is just under that, and is there any uproar from the public? Is anyone in the general public feeling the pinch from the cost of fuel? I'm beginning to think not - no one complains - the stores are crowded on the weekends - restaurants in my area are mobbed when I drive past - there's always a line out the door at the local pizza place on weekends - no one complains about the increased price of food/groceries. It's really all a mystery to me - to be honest.

The wholesale price of heating oil closed at $3.20-85/100 a gallon yesterday, Thursday, February 9.

Retail heating oil prices tend to be at a $0.50 to $0.75 a gallon premium to the wholesale heating oil price as traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange, which would mean that a wholesale price of $3.21 a gallon would indicate a retail price of $3.71 to $3.96/gallon.

You can monitor the wholesale price of heating oil and other energy products by going to Wholesale Energy Prices.

on long island, on average, the price of home heating oil is higher than gas.

Average Home Heating Oil Prices

COD tends to be a bit cheaper but as of this week, the average price is a whooping $4.19 per gallon with no relief forecasted.

Thankfully it has been a mild winter. What would prices be if it was cold?

There is no relief and it's business as usual with the oil companies and distributors. There are so many people in this country that are cold in the winter and do not have the money to pay these prices. There is no solidarity here and it is such a shame. The politicians won't help the citizens yet continue to send billions to other countries every year for one reason or another. Sad state of affairs.

Crude Oil futures should have plummeted during this crazy warm winter -- yet they remained high. The reason is that more people are going out when the weather is nice, thus we are using more gasoline. Notice the gas stations jam packed on those 50+ degree weekends. Also, speculators are keeping futures inflated with the Iran threat on the table.

Bottom line is we have negated any savings because we're driving more when the weather is nice.

Glad I did it now.

Of course we are upset! But what can we do... THE current administration should DO something because THEY have the power to do so!
