Unsurprisingly, we’ve received calls about two connected issues—the surge in fuel prices and supply concerns. Russia is the world’s third largest oil producer, generating approximately 11% of total world production. The Russian invasion of Ukraine shocked the energy markets, sending crude oil to record territory and spiking all energy prices. We saw increases from our heating oil suppliers of more than $1.50 per gallon in less than a week! People are also concerned that there will be interruptions in supply that will cause them to run out of fuel. You can count on the fact that Hart & Iliff will not let you run out of oil. We have been in business for more than 130 years and have very strong relationships with suppliers and financial institutions.
