When should I buy my heating oil?

The dog days of August might not be the time you typically spend a lot of time thinking about heating oil – but perhaps you should, especially this year. You see, heating oil prices are currently down about 20 percent from where they were last year at this time. In large part that’s due to shifts in the global market for oil…but low offseason demand for fuel also helps. Protect yourself from heating season spikes with our fixed price program Since so many unpredictable factors affect the price of heating oil (the weather, politics, and global market forces, to name three […]

Change isn’t always easy – Consider how you pay your bills, for example: if you have been paying for your heating oil deliveries with monthly checks, it would be easy to keep right on doing that – even if you find yourself scrambling every month to do it and occasionally suffering for that tardiness with a late fee.

Before that time comes, however, you might think about taking care of one last heating season task before donning to your swim suit: schedule service for your heating system. We’ve […]

It was certainly an up-and-down winter and spring weather-wise here in Long Island – and billing-wise, too, if you were a Southville Petroleum Will Call customer. But if you were a Southville Budget Plan customer, you avoided the billing rollercoaster altogether. That’s because our Budget Plan divides your annual heating bill into 11 equal installments (rather than four or five), with one adjustment bill (or credit) per year. The result? You’ll pay […]

Show your Earth Day spirit by…filling your heating oil tank!

April 22, 2019 will mark the 49th trip around the sun for Earth Day – an event conceived by Senator Gaylord Nelson as a teach-in for eco-friendly ideas that help reduce our impact on the planet. One of the most important ways to reduce our impact is to make smart choices about the way we heat our homes; the good news is that when you become a Southville Petroleum heating oil customer, you will be doing just that! That’s because as of July of last year, all heating oil delivered by Southville is ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) with a […]
