AUGUSTA – The Maine Governor’s Energy Office says heating prices are holding steady in Maine as fall nears.

The office says the average price for heating oil rose a penny over the last few weeks to $1.88 per gallon. Kerosene prices have also held steady at $2.41 and propane prices have increased 3 cents to $2.15 per gallon.

Prices were fairly consistent throughout the state. Northern Maine averaged a slightly higher $2.03 per gallon for heating oil. The highest heating oil price of $2.19 per gallon was found in southwestern Maine.

The prices reflect a Sept. 12 survey.
