Our low price isn't just a one-time deal!
June is finally here and hopefully, that means we'll get to open some windows and keep the heat off, although this long damp spring has challenged the weaker souls among us who like to stay warm. The good news is that our prices have fallen back to levels we saw in January and February when our prices were the lowest they'd been in over a year. So if you get a late-season delivery, it will probably help bring down your average for the year, unless you only got a single delivery in January.
The Massachusetts state survey estimates the average household using heating oil has paid a maximum of $3.15 per gallon this season, while the price for Green Energy Consumer members in MA stayed under $3.00 per gallon for all but a week or so. We're looking at a running average close to $2.70 per gallon, which would be one of our best winters for total price savings since 2008.
Our Rhode Island members savings overall are in the 35 cents per gallon range, with our running average price around $2.60 per gallon. We don't believe any Rhode Island member had to pay over $3.00 per gallon for any delivery.
