The average price of a gallon of heating oil today in New Hampshire and Maine is over 3 bucks! That’s up over 15% since last winter. Over the past 10 or so years, heating oil prices have yo-yoed from a lovely $2 a gallon, all the way up to a gnarly $4 bucks. That’s a pretty big difference, especially when you’re filling a 275-gallon tank. So what makes oil prices shift so dramatically, and what are they likely to do this year?
