It's Down! It's Up! It's Down! The Crude Oil Market
(2008-09-08)
(wfcr) - The drop in the price of crude oil has had an impact for drivers -- and for those who heat their homes with oil. Since July, the average price of heating oil in Massachusetts is down more than $.60 a gallon, to $4.04 and -- with oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico unscathed by Hurricane Gustav -- that downward trend could continue, for awhile. But future heating oil prices will be hard to gauge. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
