Heating Oil and Propane Update


Notice: The heating season is over. Data for residential and wholesale prices for heating oil and propane will return in October 2018.

EIA discovered inconsistent pricing methodology across respondents for Residential Propane prices in most states since October 2, 2017. EIA received correct data and revised prices for October 2 through December 11, 2017. EIA has created revision tables showing the differences between the revised prices and the originally published prices.

Weekly heating oil and propane prices are only collected during the heating season, which extends from October through March.
