Heating oil monthly payments to increase for some customers
STATEWIDE (WGME) -- The price of heating oil is increasing for some customers. Dead River Company and Downeast Energy are increasing the monthly payments of customers who are burning more oil than expected.
Customers who are contracted for oil at a set per-gallon price may see an increase in their monthly bills.
The increases are not mandatory but companies say the increase will help customers avoid unexpected large bills at the end of the season.
