Nov 30, 2017

AUGUSTA, Maine - The Governor's Energy Office says heating oil prices are starting to rise in Maine.
 
A statewide survey this week put the average price at $2.44 per gallon, an increase of 9 percent since the heating season begin in October.
 
The increase comes on the heels of spikes following Hurricane Harvey in late August, which affected more than a third of the nation's refining capacity.
 
The survey found that the highest price for heating oil was $2.54, recorded in northern Maine, while the lowest was $2.42 in southwest, central and western Maine. The average statewide price of kerosene was $3.05, and propane was $2.73
