Thursday October 4th 2018. Crude oil prices have pushed ahead again over the last two days but has started to settle down with just ripple changes. Brent prices today slackened and are down by $0.18 (0.21%) and is $86.11. WTI is up by $0.16 (0.21%) to $76.25. The #heatingoil price is down $0.91 (0.37%) to $2.4281. Although the price is down slightly today the overall 2 day picture is up meaning that UK #heatingoilprices are stable at the moment but likely to increase by 0.19ppl – 0.21ppl as early as tomorrow depending on where you live. Again, we recommend you keep an eye on prices as the overall picture still suggests much higher prices are around the corner. Sanctions on Iran will be biting early November, so fill up your heating oil tanks as soon as you can.
The news from theweatheroutlook.com website for the rest of the week and next week is included below.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: A mostly dry and warmish start in the south, but the north has showery outbreaks of rain and stronger winds. Through the period the risk of wet and windy weather spreading southwards increases, but forecast details are uncertain. Quite chilly in the north.
From Monday 8th October, a lot of dry weather is predicted for the southern half of the UK. In the north west wetter and windier conditions are likely and at times the risk of rain could extend into the south. Temperatures close to average in the north. In the south some warm days are possible, but chilly nights could bring a risk of frost and fog.
The overall 31 day period trend continues upward and is on track to hit 60ppl in the next week, earlier than expected. There is a small decrease in price today of 0.02ppl, hardly worth mentioning. For the time being #heatingoilprices may have stabilised for a couple of days at least. This 31 day period has been pretty extraordinary. We have seen some steep rises in a short period and slower downward trends.The rise over the last 31 days has put an extra £19.05 on a 500 litre delivery and £38.10 on a 1000 litre delivery. Our own online site survey today continues to show an upward trend but with today’s price has fallen also by 0.02ppl to an England only average of 58.33ppl. The upward swing did settle down Wednesday and continues today. Longterm, we are still confident in predicting the underlying Heating Oil price will continue to rise and reach 60.0ppl in the next week or two. So, getting your fuel in now is crucial and may just prove to be the right action.
Autumn is definitely here with warm days in the south but with cooler nights and even frosty mornings. We anticipated a rapid uptake in heating oil usage and prices and we have been right so far. We are not expecting prices to move downward in the long term, but in the short term there may be some price breaks which you as a consumer need to take advantage off when they are lower.
