US Consumers could pay as much as 28% more to heat their homes this winter.

We have all experienced the consequence of supply chain issues in the last couple of years. It can be very inconvenient! But when it comes to heating our homes it can be much more serious. The Boston Herald is reporting rationing of heating oil far in advance of the coldest weather headed for the northeast this winter. They are quoted saying, “the extreme fuel tightness across the New York Harbor and New England region has attracted the attention of the White House”. https://www.bostonherald.com/2022/10/23/heating-oil-market-under-pressure-even-before-peak-winter/
Even in areas where fuel sources are not in danger of rationing, the cost can be a serious concern as well. A month ago Rueters warned, “ U.S. consumers can expect to pay up to 28% more to heat their homes this winter than last year due to surging fuel costs and slightly colder weather, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projected in its winter fuels outlook on Wednesday.
