You think those increases look scary?

While propane, oil, and gas prices are affected by global and regional forces, electricity costs vary greatly from state to state across New England. If you lived in New Hampshire this past year, you likely saw your electric bills shoot skyward.

Prices for propane, electricity, oil, and gas can vary widely over the course of a year, depending on global events that are completely out of our control. In two years, the average price of oil in the northeast varied between $2.72 and $6.10 per gallon. Because wood heat is locally sourced, the price isn’t affected nearly as much by global politics or events. Wood is easily the most stably priced fuel source.
