Heating Oil Price Updates

UK Heating Oil Prices at a 19 month low

Sunday 16th June 2019. Crude oil and heating oil prices starting to rise today  and already the gains are quite big. Looks like Saudi Arabia and OPEC+ have started to shore up the oil price and have proved production cuts would be sticking around for a little while longer.

A sustained rise could see UK #heatingoil prices start to push up despite summer pricing now in full swing. Brent prices are up $0.70 (1.14%) and is $62.01. WTI is also up $0.23 (0.44%) and is at $52.51. 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 also risen by $2.28 (1.26%) to $1.8294 which will push prices up next week especially in crude oils move upwards. Fill your heating oil tanks as prices are at Dec 2017 levels at the moment. In effect, prices have crashed to a 19 month low at the moment.

Attempts to push crude and other petroleum product prices higher are met with styrong resistance with the US increasing production. Prices could go higher now with OPEC pushing for more production cuts. Weak exchange rates & sanctions against Venezuela and  the escalating trade war between the US and China all play their part. It has also become a little more complicated with Iran allegedly trying to sink to VLCCs. It is quite clear to us hear that despite further threatened OPEC’s production cuts heating oil prices may just float for the time being at these low levels.I t’s worth getting multiple quotes from heatingoilshop.com on a regular basis to avoid any possible imminent price rises.
