Have you noticed during these ridiculously cold days and nights your furnace is continually running which uses the oil in your tank pretty fast.

Oil prices have been going higher and higher too. The price for heating oil in Maine is between $2.579 to $2.899. I purchased oil yesterday (1-2-18) and overnight the price went up 10 cents a gallon.

One thing is for sure, the oil companies are busy, busy, busy. If you think you are going to need oil by next week (and you have the money) order your oil NOW. Most companies are working about a week behind because the demand is so high.

Good luck staying warm!
