Today’s Heating Oil Prices

Crude and Heating Oil Analysis

Heating Oil Prices rise slower. Monday 24th June 2019. Crude oil and heating oil prices are continuing to rise today. Looks like Saudi Arabia and OPEC+ have started to shore up the oil price and  taking on the US despite OPEC threatening to increase production cuts as the US says it will increase production.

So, for the moment UK #heatingoil summer prices are now in full swing. Brent prices are up $0.02 (0.03%) and is $65.22. WTI is also up $0.36 (0.63%) and is at $57.79. Go to our home page and half way down you’ll see a live market trading position. (Mon-Fri Trading hours)

The #heatingoil price has risen by $0.12 (0.06%) to $1.9170 which may push up UK Domestic prices further. However, for the time being prices seem to be contained. Fill your heating oil tanks now as prices are still reasonable In effect, prices crashed to a 19 month low and are now recovering fast and depending on stock levels at suppliers which tend to fall during the summer months.

Although attempts to push crude and other petroleum product prices higher they are being met with strong resistance with the US increasing production. Prices could still go higher as OPEC is pushing for more production cuts.  Russia is looking to sell Iranian oil which may stagger prices.  It is quite clear to us hear that despite further threatened OPEC’s production cuts heating oil prices may just float bobbing up and down on calmer waters. For the time being it’s worth getting multiple quotes from on a regular basis to avoid any possible imminent price rises. Fill up your heating oil tanks on lower prices for now.

Distributor Analysis

The major deciding factors on prices in the coming weeks will still be the price of crude oil, production cuts, trade wars, warmer weather and availability of product. Iran hopes to sell oil through Russia, thus placing a block on Trump’s embargoes and deflecting any threats of war.  The trend is set upwards for now.
