As a commodity the price of heating oil changes by the minute daily, so the price and market can be fairly unpredictable.

However, there is a couple of things you can do to ensure you have a better chance of buying your oil at a competitive price.

Try to keep an eye on your oil levels and avoid having to make an instant purchase because your tank is really low.

Every year oil prices tend to be at their highest in the colder months, this is simply a matter of supply and demand. Therefore, it is common that the oil price is lower during the Summer.
