Upstate New York Oilheat is Abundant
Some people assume that oil stocks are running low, but this is simply not the case. There's an abundant and reliable supply of Oilheat, enough to keep all of Upstate New York warm for many years.
In the state of New York, over 1.8 million households use Oilheat. Across the country, is estimated that over 16.5 million consumers benefit from heating oil each year.
Oil is produced in 31 states and over 50 countries. The U.S. and Upstate New York are not dependent on any one country or region for their oil supply.
The U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve has a capacity of 727-million barrels, the largest stockpile of government-owned emergency crude oil in the world.
