Why does heating oil cost so much?

Tough question and believe me there is no easy answer but there are several factors involved.

1. Heating oil is a traded commodity (Speculators buy and sell oil).

2. Supply/demand

3. Large amount of oil is imported from other countries.

However, retail heating oil dealers have to pay the high prices for the oil from large companies who process and refine it. Then your local oil dealer has to add a profit margin.
