HURRICANE MARIA and Hurricane Irma, back to back, have devastated PUERTO RICO.   There are many ways to help this American territory.  Consider donating to one of the organizations listed below, or to:  www.globalgiving.org

The aftermath of HURRICANE HARVEY:   home heating oil and gas prices have risen as a result of the severity of this storm and its impact on refineries in Texas.  Please contact your dealer if you have any questions concerning price increases.

from CNBC: 

“US crude jumps 2.9% to three-week closing high of $48.66 as refineries restart after Harvey”

  • U.S. crude prices rose more than 2 percent on Tuesday as more U.S. refineries and pipelines started moving oil and fuel.
  • Hurricane Harvey disrupted about 20 to 25 percent of U.S. refining capacity.
  • Houston and the Port Arthur-Beaumont, Texas, area were still recovering on Tuesday.
  • Hurricane Irma threatens to slash demand for gasoline and other fuel as it heads towards Florida.

HEAP:

NY State has posted its new website.  Find information on the HEAP program (Home Energy Assistance Program) and find out if you are eligible to apply for assistance this coming November, as well as where to apply by county.  Also provides Emergency Information:     http://otda.ny.gov/programs/heap/HEAP-contacts.pdf

Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance Commissioner Kristin M. Proud said, “Though the economic recovery continues, we know many households are struggling financially. I encourage anyone planning to seek assistance through the Home Energy Assistance Program to do so as soon as possible. The easiest way to do so, for households outside of New York City, is to visit myBenefits.ny.gov.”
