Heating oil is used to fuel furnaces within buildings. It is usually dyed to distinguish it from taxed vehicle fuel. Typically, delivery is by tanker truck to individual homes and commercial spaces, and the oil is stored in oil tanks in the basement or outside, next to the building. Leaks in older facilities are an environmental concern.

Heating oil, also known as No. 2 fuel oil, accounts for about 25% of the yield of a barrel of crude oil, the second-largest "cut" after gasoline. [1]


Market info

Among distillate fuels, the trend in recent years has seen the proportional demand for heating oil decreasing, as usage of liquified petroleum gas (LPG) has increased. [2]
