Heating Oil Price Information

Why burn money paying broker commissions for heating oil

Friday 20th April 2018.  Crude Oils have risen slightly and fallen back over the last 2 days but the overall trend is up as OPEC now claims victory in redice surplus crude. Brent Crude is down by $0.60 or 0.08% to $73.72. Similarly, WTI is also down to $68.16 losing $0.13 or 0.19%. The #heatingoil price though is back up! At $2.1120, it is up $0.26 or 0.12%. Fortunately, with warm weather for most in the UK this will probably not reflectin changes in the UK domestic heating oil market.

The news from theweatheroutlook.com  website for the rest of the week and next week is included below.

Friday: Most of England and Wales has a fine and very warm day but a few isolated showers may break out in the afternoon. In southern and central regions temperatures peak close to 27C (81F). Scotland and Northern Ireland have sunny spells but it will be cooler and showers are more likely.

Saturday: Sunny spells will be widespread but in central and western areas showers develop and push northwards into Northern Ireland and Scotland. Central and eastern regions should remain fine and warm but temperatures probably won’t be as high as in recent days. Heavy showers become widespread overnight.

Sunday: Heavy showers push eastwards and are followed by drier and brighter weather. Central and south eastern England stays warm but in the north and west it will be quite a lot cooler than recently.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: Unsettled conditions bring showers or longer periods of rain to all regions. There will be drier and brighter interludes with the best of them in the south. Temperatures in the south shouldn’t be far off the average but the north is likely to be chilly. It could also be windy at times.

Week commencing 28th April shows an Atlantic based pattern probably remains in place throughout the week. There is a chance of low pressure becoming centred to the west of the UK and that could lead to warmer air being pulled up from the south across the eastern half of the UK at times.
