Heating oil prices inch up in Maine

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The cost of home heating oil in Maine has inched up by a penny in the past week to an average of $3.76 per gallon.

The Governor's Energy Office says Monday's price was 25 cents a gallon higher than a year ago.

As usual, the lowest prices are in southern Maine and the highest are in northern Maine.

Maine energy officials say the cost of kerosene was the same as a week ago at $4.19 a gallon.

Propane was up 3 cents from a week ago, to $2.67 a gallon.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration last week projected that heating costs in households that use oil would be higher this winter than any winter on record.
