But whether you believe in the predictions of a book or the shadows of a rodent or the color of the moon, one thing is clear: Colder temperatures are on the way and now is the time to get ready. With a volatile heating oil market, doing what you can to weatherproof your home, ensure the efficiency of your heating system and get your best heating oil pricing in place can make a big difference.
