The need to compare #heatingoilprices has been highlighted recently by the increase and decrease in the cost of crude oil and all of its derivatives.
#Heatingoilprices started tumbling about the 15th January 2016 until June 2017. Crude Oil prices started rising steadily throughout the last half of 2017 year and reached a peak on the 15th January 2018. As a result,there was a substantial impact on the price of many heating products such as #heatingoil, gas oil and diesel fuel.
However, this is being written on the 20th January 2018 and there is a sense of deja-vu lingering in the air. It’s to do with the date, “15th January”. Two years to the day crude oil started to fall again and quite spectaculary after reaching the heady heights of $70.26. Okay, at the moment its lost $1.65 but an air of caution exists. After the OPEC cuts, the US is now increasing its production deliberately to sabotage the OPEC cuts and bring down prices again. Thus counterbalancing the market and tipping it in the US’s favour.
Last September the average UK heating oil price was 40.44ppl and now we are at 50.56ppl. Thirty days ago the average price was 55.81ppl. It is anticipated with the weather turning milder, Spring around the corner we could possibly see a return to 45.06 ppl by 20th February 2018.
