Rising energy costs have been a painful, unfortunate fact of life in 2022. The factors leading to higher energy rates are global and complex. We’re as eager as you are to see heating oil prices return to normal. Some people think that local fuel companies, like ours, make more money when prices go up. The opposite is true. Our margins suffer, customers cut back on usage and are late paying bills. Meanwhile, we need to pay our suppliers in 10 days. It’s an awful mess for everyone. We want to keep you in the loop during the heating season and help you navigate this winter.
