We have had a very cold start to December and as the furnaces start to kick in the cost of heating fuel in Maine is costing Mainers more. The Governor’s Energy Office said earlier this week that its weekly survey found the average price for home heating oil has risen 5 cents to $3.61 a gallon.Those who use kerosene saw prices rise by 4 cents to $4.00 a gallon. Propane prices stayed even at $2.77 per gallon.

Officials say that crude oil prices have risen this week as new pipeline capacity will decrease current domestic inventories.
