follow this link to a chart that is updated weekly and compares current prices to last year's price ,which makes it even more depressing. I have found the prices quoted for Long Island to be quite accurate.

I'm paying $2.89 /gallon and Igot a GREAT deal ( I shopped aroudn.. best price won). I had a fill up 12/4 for $540 (I was almost empty). THey delivered again on 12/31 for $340 !! I burned that much in oil in 1 month AND I have a NEW heating system, keep the heat down upstairs AND do not put my heat above 65 (we walk arund in sweaters and cuddle under blankets).

Just got raped on the Petro delivery of about 150 gallons, give or take....3.74 a gallon OUCH!

It appears the days of a decent fixed price plan I used to use are gone as I was never able to get in early enough at a good rate. Hindsight being 20/20 they are all good rates compared to this. Might have to consider their ceiling plan. Next delivery is tentatively scheduled for mid-late february....we will see....

Just got our oil delivery on 4/10 - oddly enough it was $4.10/gallon!!! Maybe they are matching the price to the day haha
We have automatic delivery/contract with a small company who promised us 20 cents/gallon off the "going rate". the last price noted at this link:

was much lower - has heating oil risen that much in the past few days ??
any thoughts/comments appreciated. I expect to pay a bit more for the service and know I can get cod cheaper, but like have convenience of the contract.

Wholesale heating oil is up about 21/gallon in the last week (Friday, April 4 to Friday, April 11), and was $3.19-75/100 a gallon at the close of trading on Friday.

You can monitor wholesale heating oil prices by going here: futuresource.com | Futures & Commodities Custom Quotes


Normally, at this time of the year, wholesale heating prices are at a price discount to wholesale gasoline prices, but this year is different and currently wholesale heating oil prices are at a 39/gallon premium to wholesale gasoline prices. This reflects the strong worldwide demand and resulting high prices being paid for diesel fuel and that diesel fuel is made from the same feedstock as is heating oil.
