A Maine government survey says the average statewide price for heating oil has gone up 11 cents in the last month.

The Governor’s Energy Office says the average price for heating oil according to the June 13 survey was $1.93 per gallon.

Kerosene prices have also gone up 11 cents to $2.45 and propane prices have fallen 2 cents to $2.19 per gallon.

State officials say prices are rising with the price of crude oil, which has risen from less than $30 per barrel in January to just under $50 per barrel now.

The highest heating oil price on June 13 was $2.40 in eastern Maine and the lowest was $1.70 in eastern, western and southwestern Maine.
