A guide to kerosene prices

About kerosene

Kerosene is widely known as an efficient and reliable fuel source. The thin clear liquid is often used to heat homes and has many commercial uses too. Kerosene, or 28 second oil as it is commonly known, is a popular choice, due to its low freezing point, for industries where engines and machinery are exposed to colder temperatures. 

As with all fossil fuels, kerosene contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, however, it produces fewer emissions than some traditional fuels like coal and wood.

How much is kerosene and what affects kerosene Prices in the UK?

Kerosene prices fluctuate daily and even throughout the day, therefore It is always advisable to contact your local team for up-to-date kerosene prices. 

Supply and demand influences prices while other factors affecting the cost of kerosene include exchange rates, VAT rates and OPEC agreements. OPEC (The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) exists to keep global oil prices stable which then affects the price of domestic fuel. Social and political issues can also impact kerosene prices, such as conflicts in oil producing countries and, of course, the weather is known to alter fuel prices due to delivery issues or increases on demand.
