Heating Oil Prices Continue to Rise
The cost of home heating oil in Maine continues to rise, up two cents in the past week to an average of $3.85 per gallon, according to the Governor’s Energy Office.
“Soaring heating fuel costs, accompanied by equally high gasoline and diesel prices, are straining Maine household budgets as a challenging heating season continues,” reports the GEO. The cost of oil is out of your hands, but investing in energy efficiency offers a clear pathway to reducing your energy needs. Efficiency is regularly called our cheapest, cleanest energy source, and Efficiency Maine’s $600 rebates and long-term, low-interest loans make it even more affordable.
