That’s what I paid for home heating oil in NJ.
I don’t normally fill up in the spring and wait until August for it to be at its lowest but this was as low as I’ve ever seen it so I filled 218 gallons worth. Don’t know what the remainder of the year will bring either so I’m covered for at least the first tank of next winter.

Might seem like a roll of the dice , but i think a good bet . we keep a very close eye on oil prices here , our state government revenue is closely tied to the industry . oil wells, natural gas wells , half the refineries/chemical plants in the south . during the "gas wars" long ago i remember filling the 12 gallon tank on a 1968 Fiat 850 spyder rag top , at 19 CENTS a gallon . high school heaven !! coppersmythe.......................PS: and getting low 30's MPG

Above an interesting read on crud oil excess. If the article holds true, I don't expect a sharp or sudden increase in retail gasoline prices.
I have an excuse. CRS.

After a few weeks of not filling up the pickup and acquiring fuel points at the grocery store, I stopped in to fill up at QT. My goodness! Saved $0.76/gal, bringing it down to $0.59/gal. I spent $11.98 for 20 gallons. Hard to believe.

Kroger in Hamilton Ohio (20 miles from me) was $1.10 a gallon last week. Yesterday it was $1.59.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

good morning all from the cool deep south ( thanks bob) . we are usually a little ahead of the rest of the country , our cheapo station is up to $ 1.51 . multiple reasons for the oil market rebounding recently .
