Here's what I have for this week's price changes:
Heating/stove oils to increase by 1.6 cents a litre.
Diesel to increase by 2.0 cents a litre, and...
Gasoline to increase by 1.6 cents a litre.
With oil prices increasing, refined commodity prices have also been
rising. Anticipated builds to inventories are slowing somewhat and may
be reflective of the slowdown in US domestic production being added, or
it may be a sign that demand for gasoline and related products is
picking up again.
Chinese demand still remains weak amongst
emerging nations. With the latest news on lower than expected
manufacturing data, it has to be a disappointment for those nations
hoping to export there. China remains almost shut out for the time being
as a potential market to pick up any excess of supply out there.
Finally, look here in the coming days as government has announced it
will put taxes back on your heat and light bill. I will be posting a
petition for you all to sign and have others sign as well as we are
again back to the drawing board when it comes to having the tax off
heat. It is, I feel, an important issue for everyone from seniors to
those on lower incomes. Simple fact of the matter is that this is just
as important to me to not have a tax on heat as much as there's no tax
I hope you will help me in this quest!
