The National Weather Service is observing ocean and atmospheric conditions that reflect “enso-neutral” conditions this season. If these conditions continue, many are predicting above-normal temperatures across the U.S. this winter. That could mean another season of using less heating oil than average – which is great for your pocket! As a bonus, experts are predicting stable heating oil prices in NJ, ensuring that you stay comfortably warm and save money at the same time.
Trends for Heating Oil Prices in NJ
For customers buying heating oil for the upcoming season, costs are down 35% from two years ago and 40% from three years ago. The price per gallon of heating oil in New Jersey averages about 16 cents lower today, than compared to 2015.
According to the Federal Energy Information Agency, heating oil prices in NJ average about $2.35 a gallon going into the current winter season. The EIA states last year’s average was $2.50; two years ago, it was $3.64 a gallon; and three years ago, it was $3.86 a gallon – a steady downward trend.
Heating oil price predictions are subject to the severity of winter weather. While some are predicting an “enso-neutral” season, other experts are predicting cold and bitter conditions. With above average snowfalls forecasted for New Jersey, cold temperatures and severe weather patterns could have a bearing on supply and demand in the market.
