Recent Heating Oil Prices in New York State
You may be wondering how heating oil prices are set in Albany, NY, Troy, NY and the Greater Capital Region. They are always a popular topic of conversation and the news seems to have a breaking story on oil prices every week. As heating oil is a by-product of crude oil, the constantly fluctuating price of crude oil determined by worldwide supply and demand may have an impact on the price of heating oil.
Heating oil is a petroleum product that goes through an interesting journey before it ends up in the heating oil tank at your home. The journey begins with exploration and drilling for crude oil. After the crude oil is discovered and reached, it is extracted from the earth. The crude oil is then sent to a refinery where it is converted into the petroleum products we use each day, such as heating oil and gasoline. Once heating oil is produced, it is shipped to a terminal where it is stored and eventually sold to heating oil suppliers like Polsinello Fuels Inc. Then the heating oil is loaded into our trucks and delivered to your home or business. Every step of this process affects home heating oil prices. Fortunately, this is a reliable and efficient process of keeping you and your family warm!
