Heating Oil Prices FAQ

There are a huge number of external factors that impact the price of heating oil. Many of these price factors are beyond our control and are fixed between the oil producers. Heating oil prices rise and fall depending on the value of crude oil, which is closely linked to supply and demand.

With prices being so changeable, we aren’t able to provide definite figures on where it is at this exact minute. However, when you get in touch we always quote our lowest possible prices.

Crude oil is the name for unprocessed fuel. Kerosene is a crude oil product, so if the cost of crude oil changes, heating oil prices normally follow. It’s hard to predict crude oil prices as this often depends on supply and demand.

For the past couple of years, producers have pumped more oil than is needed, resulting in a surplus. With supply outstripping demand, the prices are lowered. In these situations, however, the production can be cut to create demand – though it would push prices back up. Crude oil prices simply can’t be forecast very easily.

There are no hard and fast rules for getting cheaper heating oil in the UK. Typically, demand for heating oil is much higher in winter which can push prices up. As kerosene and premium kerosene can be stored safely in heating oil tanks for long periods, it’s a great idea to place your order in summer when demand is lower.

There are approximately 4 million households in the UK that are off grid. That’s a lot of homes that could be using heating oil. Though demand for heating oil may be higher in some rural areas, this rarely alters the price. If there are several homes near you that use heating oil, you could consider buying together in bulk to make savings that way.
