Today’s Heating Oil Prices

Thursday October 18th 2018.  Crude oil prices continue to fall. There has been further decrease today. Brent prices fell today by $0.84 (1.05%) and is $79.21. WTI is down by $0.74 (1.06%) to $69.01. The #heatingoil price is down by $1.59 (0.69%) to $2.2952. This will have a beneficial effect on prices which will probably fall tomorrow after the small rise today. Keep an eye on prices as the overall picture still suggests higher prices are around the corner. Sanctions on Iran will be biting early November which is only 1½ weeks away, so fill up your heating oil tanks as soon as you can.


The news from  website for the rest of the week and next week is included below.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: Patchy outbreaks of rain and cooler air slowly push southeastwards early in the period. Through Friday and the weekend predominantly dry and quiet weather is forecast for much of the UK, although in the north west there is a greater chance of rain. Towards the end of the period a band of rain could push southeastwards to affect much of the country. Temperatures generally close to average in the north and above average in the south.

From Monday 22nd October. The first half of the week should bring a good deal of dry weather to the southern half of the UK. The north probably will be more changeable with a greater risk of showers or longer spells of rain. Later in the period the changeable weather could spread southwards.

The overall 31 day period trend continues upward however, over the last 7 days prices have tracked downward  and have stabilised over the last 6 days. For the time being #heatingoilprices seem to be holding there own and movements are restricted to very minor falls or rises. However, with the Saudi’s and other OPEC states increasing  production we may now probably see further stabilisation in crude and heating oil prices.  The last 7 days has seen some price breaks so take advantage and get some heating oil quotes in from
