Folks, In 1980 I started an oil company with the help of my loving wife Donna. With $3000.00, I bought a
1964 White oil truck and a load of oil from Quincy Oil Co.
Now after 36 years, I am proud to announce that I have
sold my oil company to my sons Richard and Christopher. I have the deepest confidence in both of them. They have
been involved in the business since they were kids. They did whatever they could to make my work a little easier.
Both know the business from the bottom up. They have done it all.
My wife Donna has
worked right along with me since we started the business. I could not have been so successful without her.
Donna will still be involved in the daily operation of the business. The woman refuses to get old.
hope to help my boys in any way I can but they will be in control of everything.
I would like to
thank everyone that I have had the pleasure to meet in this business. I wish all of you good health, happiness
and success at whatever you do.

The weekly Department of Energy report released Wednesday showed crude oil stocks up 800,000 barrels at 340 million barrels. Distillate stocks
(fuel oil) were down 2.1 million barrels to 167.8 million barrels. This is still much higher than last year's level
of 128 million barrels. Demand for distillate is down 13.1% over last year and gasoline demand is up 1.9% over last
year. This shows nobody wanted to travel last year because of the high price of gasoline. I think conservation
and updated equipment are the reasons for the drop in fuel oil demand this year. The free market is working again to
regulate prices. No need to tax us into conservation. (Markey, Waxman Cap and Trade Bill).
Here's a little tidbit of information about distillate prices. According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, until
the spring of 2008 small amounts of distillates were imported primarily from Canada and the Virgin Islands. As world
demand increased the U.S. increased production, U.S. demand decreased thus the United States became an exporter of distillates.
The increased demand in the world for distillates has created a premium for distillates even though domestic demand has dropped
considerably, thus the increase of the premium of fuel oil over gasoline at the pumps. This could be a short lived phenomenon.

As a member, I received a letter from NEFI
(New England Fuel Institute) on October 6 to inform me of an important development in the fuel oil industry. On
September 15 a national alliance of oil industry trade groups, stake holders and leaders met in Baltimore, MD for a national
policy summit. "The goal was to carve a path forward for the industry and bring a more competitive, domestically
produced and leaner, cleaner and greener home heating fuel to our customers nation-wide". The attendees overwhelmingly
approved the following resolution:The heating oil industry recommends and will encourage the Congress and appropriate
state bodies to mandate the following changes for heating oil:
1. By July 2010, all heating oil will
be mixed with a biofuel component that means the appropriate specifications to ensure that at least 2 percent of
the fuel is renewable, and that such levels shall increase over time as technical and economic feasibility permit.
2. By July 2011, the petroleum base stock we now call heating oil will be transitioned
to ultra low sulfur.
3. In the interest of lowering the carbon intensity of heating oil applications,
training will be provided to heating oil companies on thermal solar applications.
This only a recommendation to the U.S. Congress at this time.

Well I did it. If you haven’t been watching Comcast (channel 13) in
Halifax you missed my commentary with my son Rick on the cap and trade bill sponsored by Massachusetts Congressman Markey
and California Congressman Waxman. Click the link above to see it.
On another note,
inventories came out on Wednesday. Inventories of crude oil were up 2.8 million barrels to 338 million barrels. (A barrel
of oil is 42 gallons.) Gasoline stocks were down 1.6 million barrels to 212 million. Gasoline demand is up 5.7% over last
year on a four week rolling average. Distillate stocks (fuel oil, diesel, kerosene) increased 300,000 barrels to 171.1 million
barrels. Demand for distillate is down 9.2% over last year. The price of a barrel of oil is around $70.00 with no clear cut
direction. Sounds like the economy. The stock market is up and so is the unemployment picture. Housing is still anemic. Yup,
the free market is still working.
