Heating Oil Prices in England
Heating oil prices in England are usually lowest in the summer, due to the fall in demand, so whenever possible, take advantage of these lower heating oil prices and fill your tank then. In the summer, when you are just heating your water, your oil level will hardly move but, come autumn, when the heating goes back on you may no longer be in the habit of checking your oil level and you can be caught out.
Heating oil prices can start rising as early as September so check your tank regularly and order your domestic heating oil in plenty of time. The most important thing is to have your tank as full as possible before the December rush. The Christmas queue in the supermarket is easy for us all to avoid - try to imagine what it would be like if you had to form a queue with thousands of other people to buy your oil.
How we create the heating oil prices chart
We check the lowest 1000 litre price for heating oil from all our participating suppliers in England and then plot the average of all of these prices on the heating oil chart above so that you can see what the price trend is at any given time. The chart is updated daily so you can be assured the information is current. (Prices shown in the graph do not include VAT)
The chart allows you to look back over previous years to see what the heating oil price was at a particular time and compare it with today. You can monitor trends e.g. what did the heating oil price do last month? Or you can see what effect various factors that impact on heating oil prices such as time of year, economic data and unrest in the Middle East have on what you pay.
