Global instability can lead to heating oil shortages

Why Your Pellet Stove in Connecticut Needs Manchester Heating Pellets Now!


If you're a Connecticut homeowner who relies on both a pellet stove and home heating oil for winter heating, now is the critical time to secure a full season's worth of heating pellets for your pellet stove. Escalating tensions in the Middle East could lead to serious disruptions in the global oil supply. Given that heating oil is a refined product made from crude oil, any spike in global oil prices will translate into an increase in home heating oil costs. In fact, we've already seen a 10% rise in prices within the past week, and the conflict has not yet spread. The risk of shortages and supply disruptions is real, making immediate action essential.

Manchester Heating Pellets are produced right here in Connecticut and are priced more competitively than heating pellets of similar quality (pellets with very low ash content). Plus, Manchester Heating Pellets offers affordable local delivery options to Manchester and surrounding areas. Don't wait for energy prices to rise further. Stock up on pellets today!

Volatility Characterizes Global Oil Markets

Extreme volatility is often displayed by global oil markets. Triggered by geopolitical events or even the mere threat of an oil embargo, significant fluctuations in oil prices can be observed. A historical precedent was set in the 1970's, when oil prices quadrupled due to an embargo. By such an event, a clear message is conveyed: dependence on oil for home heating carries financial risks.

Financial Strain Felt by Connecticut Households

A direct impact on the cost of living in Connecticut would be made by soaring oil prices. Most keenly felt during the winter months, the financial burden of heating costs can be overwhelming for many households.
