Maine heating oil prices dip from record highs
The price of home heating oil in Maine is falling from record highs.
About two weeks ago, a gallon of number two heating oil cost, on average, $5.71 in the state, with some retailers reporting prices well over $6. But the Governor's Energy Office says statewide average prices this week have fallen downward, closer to $5 a gallon.
More than 60% of homes in Maine rely on oil for winter heating.
