Go Online for Oil
A Maine website puts a price on oil across the state.
Have you already ordered your space heaters and thermal curtains for winter? You’re not alone. Another way to save is to make sure your price per gallon is the best deal in town. And the way to do that is to go online. www.maineoil.com broadcasts the going rates for oil and kerosene across the state. The site is divided into seven regions: Greater Portland, Augusta/Waterville, Lewiston/Auburn/western Maine, southern Maine, midcoast, mid-Maine/Bangor, and Down East. Within each region, the oil companies’ price per gallon is listed and contact information for each company is available as well. Don’t miss the calculator feature, which can calculate an estimate — however depressing — of expenses based on gallon amount, cash amount, or fuel gauge. Feeling the pressure at the pump, too? Check out GasBuddy.com’s Maine-specific site www.mainegasprices.com for a similar comparison of gas prices at stations across the state.
