Why do oil prices fluctuate? Why do different dealers have different prices?

Oil prices fluctuate because it is a globally traded commodity that is affected by supply and demand fundamentals, geo-political events, and cold weather to name a few. Most full service dealers are very competitive, and you will most likely find most full service dealer’s pricing comparable.

Some smaller or “C.O.D.” type companies may offer a cheaper price, but may not offer automatic delivery, emergency service, or deliveries when needed. Like so many other businesses, there is “no such thing as a free lunch” in the heating oil business!
