Fuel price shocks that pushed California pump prices past $5/gallon could next hit heating oil users in New York, where depleted supplies and new green regulations could push bills up sharply this winter. The average cost of heating oil in New York is already up 8% Y/Y at $4.08/gal., and a real cold spell this winter could be all it takes to send spot heating oil prices to $5/gal.

    Every apartment building I have been in in the last 8 months (30 +) in NYC has converted to nat gas, as fuel oil is being phased out in the city. The same is true for the areas around the city. Demand for fuel oil in New York is falling, and will continue to fall. Unless the winter is especially cold, or a major refinery goes out, I don't see a spike coming.
