Heating Oil Pricing Updates

Tuesday 18th September 2018.  Crude oil prices are on a st,eep rise again. Brent prices are up by $0.96 (1.23%) and is $79.01. WTI is up by $0.87 (1.26%) to $69.78.

The #heatingoil price is up by $2.91 (1.32%) to $2.23.56. In the UK, #heatingoilprices will probably move up in response to this rise after a period of stabilisation. 

Again, we recommend you keep an eye on prices as Iran’s supply issues continue to threaten higher prices for all products as sanctions bite, 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.

Tuesday: During the early part of the morning heavy outbreaks of rain push across central and northern areas and they are followed by showery conditions from the west. In central and south eastern England it should be mainly dry and warm in sunny spells. Gales affect northern and western areas during the first half of the day but later on winds ease.

Wednesday: Outbreaks of rain in the north west steadily push southeastwards. They probably reach Wales and northern England during the second half of the day. Clearer and showery conditions follow on behind. It will be windy and in the far north gales, or even severe gales, are possible. Southern and central counties stay quite warm and dry.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: Unsettled. Showers or longer spells of rain and strong winds are possible in all regions, but especially the north and west. The driest and warmest conditions are expected to be in the south and east.

From Monday 24th September the northern half of the UK has wet and windy periods. The south should be more settled, although there is a risk of it turning wet and windy on occasion. Temperatures close to or slightly below average in the north but above average in the south.

Over the last 31 days there has been a steady push upwards on heating oil prices which has added 3.65ppl. This means a 500 litre fill costs £18.25 more and a 1000 litre load £37.50ppl.

For the second time this period we have reached 55.45ppl. The overall 31 day period trend continues upward and our own online site survey continues to show an upward trend. For now we are seeing prices hovering around the 55.45ppl mark.

We are still confident in predicting the underlying Heating Oil price will continue to rise and reach 60.0ppl before the end of November or sooner. Today, our own survey of average UK online #heatingoil prices is up to 54.24ppl. A good time to top up your heating oil tanks.

At this time of year of cooler nights we anticipate an uptake in heating oil usage and prices. We are not expecting prices to move downward in the long term, but in the short term there will be the occassional price drop and you as a consumer need to take advantage. The last 14 days show a a large diversity in prices. Today’s average #heatingoil prices are at 55.07ppl. Our own survey of online sites confirms average prices of 54.247ppl. Today, we have seen low prices of 51.03ppl and highs of 56.65ppl (inc vat)  from one of the UK’s favourite broker sites.  Low and high prices differ by 5.62ppl.

So, the trend continues upwards there was a slight rise today but we are expecting prices to continue upwards. We highly recommend filling those tanks up now. It seems that prices will continue to fluctuate between 52.00ppl and 56.00ppl inc vat with 60ppl on the horizon for late November.  There are some suppliers’ prices that are still very keen and bargains are becoming scarcer as we move into seasonal heating oil pricing.
