Why do Domestic Oil Prices Fluctuate?

Heating oil prices in the UK can be volatile. Numerous factors such as the weather and supply and demand influence daily fuel price trends. We know that homeowners want the best prices for heating oil. So, we have created this guide to give you all the information you need.

Weather Impacts Supply and Demand of Heating Oil

The weather can have a huge impact on the price of crude oil in the UK, as the oil industry works through supply and demand.  For example, in the colder months, when more homes are turning up their heating, the demand for oil is higher. Therefore, heating oil prices per litre are always higher when the weather is cold.

But this doesn’t mean that you can’t get a good deal on your heating oil. As one of the UK’s leading heating oil suppliers, we advise our customers to take advantage of cheaper heating oil prices during the warmer months. By topping up your fuel oil stock in the summer, you can keep the cost down throughout the year.

Delivery Costs Depend on the Amount of Oil you Order

The amount of oil you purchase can also impact the price. Buying in bulk can reduce oil delivery costs, as drivers have to make fewer trips to deliver your order. However, remember that a heating oil tank should only be filled up to around 80-90% of its capacity to avoid spillage.

If you have a smaller tank but would like to take advantage of bulk discounts, you could form or join a heating oil club. These are free groups of homeowners that bulk buy their oil together and save money on their order. Speak to your neighbours and local community to get involved.

Location Plays a Part in Heating Oil Prices

Location is also a factor that can affect heating oil prices, particularly if the location is difficult to get to or it receives fewer orders. However, we have an extensive and reliable delivery network that comprises more than 130 depots, over 900 tankers and 2,300 employees. So, you can be assured Certas Energy can cater to your heating needs wherever you are.
