Heating Oil Prices up as Summer Approaches
Summer is not even here, but as Mainers we have always think about winter heating.
The average statewide price for heating oil has gone up 11 cents in the last month. The Governor's Energy Office says the average price for heating oil according to the June 13 survey was $1.93 per gallon. State officials say prices are rising with the price of crude oil, which has risen from less than $30 per barrel in January to just under $50 per barrel now. (AP)
