Maine prices for heating oil, kerosene and propane drop around state as summer sets in


AUGUSTA, Maine — A Maine government survey says the average statewide cash price for heating oil fell 5 cents from a month ago.

The Governor's Energy Office says the average price was $2.45 a gallon. The average kerosene price fell 2 cents to $3 and propane prices fell 10 cents to $2.42. State officials say the lower prices are a sign of the heating "off" season.

The highest price for heating oil in the state was $2.80 in eastern Maine while the low price of $2.10 was found in the southwestern and western parts of the state.

Southwestern Maine had the highest average price for kerosene at $3.06, while the average propane price topped out at $2.49 in northern Maine.
