Patriot (Clark, NJ) — Thursday, November 6, 2008

STATE — The temperatures outside are starting to drop and, fortunately, the oil prices seem to be dropping as well. In fact, current crude oil prices are around $62 a barrel (down from over $140 a barrel just a few months ago) and New Jersey consumers are paying an average of $2.70 per gallon. Just don't get too comfortable! Analysts are predicting that oil could soon be on the rise again; reaching above $4.20 per gallon this winter.

Consumers can help protect themselves by joining New Jersey Citizen Action Oil Group. The Oil Group uses bulk purchasing power to negotiate lower prices so consumers can save hundreds of dollars a year on their home heating oil. In fact, last year most of their members saved between $300 and $600 dollars. "Members of the Oil Group feel confident that not only are they getting a bargain on their price of oil, but they are also taking a stand in the fight for lower oil prices," said Wende Nachman, New Jersey Citizen Action Oil Group Director.
