Maine Oil Prices Drop as Summer Sets in, World Price Tumbles

Shadow in the snowWinter is coming…for real. We always have to think about our heating and winter, even in the middle of a beautiful summer.

The Governor’s Energy Office says the price of heating oil in Maine has dropped 20 cents recently.

According to the Associated Press the statewide average cash price for No. 2 heating oil was $1.97 per gallon this week.

The statewide price of kerosene was also down 20 cents, to $2.52. Propane prices have fallen four cents in the same time period and are now down to $2.39 per gallon.

Maine energy officials say the decline in heating prices isn’t just because of summer. They say global crude prices remaining below $50 per barrel also matters.

The state found the highest heating oil price was $2.25, while the lowest was $1.66. Northern Maine had a higher average at $2.12 per gallon according to AP.

The figures reflect a July 10 survey.
