2015 Oil Price Review and Predictions

Oil prices reached an 11 year low this year, seeing the price per barrel of WTI (West Texas Immediate) Crude Oil dropping to $34.73 on December 18th. In 2015 this price fall has been reflected by the price of home heating oil with our price on December 22nd reaching 26.99p per litre! In this post I’ll explain why these prices have dropped so much, the reason fuel prices don’t vary as much as heating oil prices and my predictions for 2016.

What could El Niño mean for your Winter Fuel Delivery in 2015??

Weather conditions are always worse throughout the winter months, which can lead to disruption to your heating oil deliveries.  Aspects such as heavy snow, icy roads, storms and floods all have an impact on the time it takes to deliver heating oil to your homes.  This year, conditions could be harsher than before, as it has been declared by forecast centres that an El Niño has started in the tropical Pacific.
