UK domestic #heatingoil prices  were pretty much stable. The two deciding factors on prices in the next week will be the price of crude oil and the UK weather. Most forecasters are now predicting that temperatures will stay low for at least another week . If there are further snow falls in parts of the UK during this period, delivery times can get extended and prices rise.
