Maine Heating Oil Prices Drop A Penny
11/13/2012 04:37 PM ET  

State energy officials say the statewide average cash price for No. 2 heating oil is now 3 cents lower than it was Oct. 1, and now stands at the same price it was selling for at this time last year.

Heating oil prices in Maine dropped a penny over the past week. That's according to the Governor's Energy Office's weekly survey, which finds that the statewide average cash price for No. 2 heating oil now stands at $3.65 a gallon.

State officials say that's three cents lower than the first of October and the same average price a gallon of heating fuel was selling for at this same time a year ago.

Actual prices varied across the state, with highest price of $3.86 a gallon found in eastern Maine and the lowest price of $3.36 a gallon found in the southwest, east and west regions of the state.

Kerosene is currently selling for $4.09, down 4 cents from last week, while propane, based on an annual use of at least 900 gallons a year, is currently selling for $2.78 a gallon.
