On October 5, OPEC announced it would slash production by two million barrels a day. Within just three days, our suppliers increased the cost of heating oil by 70 cents per gallon. That’s right, 70 cents per gallon.
This is not just impacting heating oil. Expect natural gas, electricity gasoline and propane to move higher. Of course, things can turn around just as quickly. We saw prices spike in spring only to plummet by more than a dollar in summer. There are just too many variables to know where things will go from here.
Right now, our phones are ringing off the hook, and hold times are longer than usual. Remember, we have a “call back” option you will hear while on hold. You can also submit a customer service request through our website. Finally, you can order fuel and pay bills on our online portal accessed on the home page of our website.
We will try to keep you informed as events unfold. There are many things we can’t control. But we will always prioritize our existing customers over adding new ones. We will go the extra mile to keep you safe and warm. And we will be there when you need us.
