When is the best time to buy heating oil?
Posted: August 19, 2019

calendarAs we make our way through the dog days of August here in NJ, nudging our thermostats to the left as we attempt to shrug off all that heat and humidity, buying oil to heat your home is probably the last thing on your mind.

Which is exactly why it should be.

OK, we’re not channeling Yogi Berra here (although it would be appropriate, since the Yogi Berra Museum is right here in the Garden State). What we mean to say is that if you put off buying your heating oil until late September or October (or even later), you’ll be joining the thousands of Sussex County home and business owners who all need fuel at the same time. All that demand could (and often does) cause heating oil prices to rise – which is why buying your fuel now should be on your mind! Makes sense, no?

As it happens, heating oil prices are down about 20 percent from this time last year –another reason to get your order in early.

Another way to save: Capped Price from Fredericks Fuel

That’s why Fredericks a Capped Price Program to keep heating bill surprises to a minimum. Here’s how it works:
