Home heating oil prices drop 3 cents in Maine

AUGUSTA – Maine consumers of home heating oil may be getting a little relief.

The average statewide price for No. 2 oil dropped three cents per gallon this week, according to the State Planning Office. The average now stands at $1.49, 45 cents higher than at the same time last year.

Prices around the state ranged from a high of $1.55 to a low of $1.35.

Oil prices have dropped 7 cents in two weeks. Kerosene prices were also down, but propane – which is made from natural gas – was higher.
